please don’t take my heart.
don’t take it like all of the others and mold it into something foreign;
walk all over it like it’s your dominion;
break it into pieces that will never fit quite the same again.
please, instead, take my hand.
take my hand and show me the delights adventure can bestow;
show me places where i feel captivated rather than a captive;
lead me into the unknown with optimism and wisdom.
i assure you if you take my hand, my heart will soon follow your lead.
