A Beautiful Heart

One day a man declared that he had the most beautiful heart. It was perfectly in shape and smooth and shining. An old man came to him and claimed that his heart may not be as beautiful as old man's own heart. The young man took a look at the heart of old man. It was beating fastly with all scars and rough edges on it. The man defended his opinion and countered that how can such a dirty heart be a beautiful heart at all. The old man then explained, though my heart may be full of scars and tears. But each scar represents a person to whom I have given my love. I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them. And often they give me a piece of theirs which fits in the empty space.But because the pieces are not exact, sometimes they are smaller, sometimes bigger, therefore I have all those rough edges. All those remind of the love I have shared. Sometimes I have given pieces of my heart away without getting any piece from other person.This is the reason for all those cavities. Afterall giving love is taking a chance. Although these voids may be painful, but they remain open reminding me of love I have for those people too. And I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting. So now you see What True Beauty is ? Did you protect your heart so much that it is perfect without scars ? Have you ever touched someones's life ?
Sometimes it hurts but this is when life counts
