To a Friend in Africa

Opening your heart is like opening the door
You don’t just have to fling it open every hour of the day
That would be exhausting

There’s a time to crack the door a little
Take a peek
And not venture out

Since there can be very obvious reasons
To open slowly, gradually
And some days not very much

It’s OK to guard your heart
It’s OK to open your heart
Neither guarding nor opening is permanent
