the risk

Is it possible to feel too deeply?
A heart that aches incessantly,
Holds room for joy too.
Cannot sorrow and joy inhabit the same chambers?

For what is a life without the highs and lows?
The fullness of heart is preferred,
Over hollow.
Is it not worth the risk?

The fullness of the heart is preferred - I agree. Dare to live.

Lovely thoughts. I like the idea of the heart holding both joy and sorrow. You're so right in your sentiment, which seems to be a response to all celebrating here. Thank you!
