Don't be afraid to cry. You will not die. A broken heart has more life than one held in part.

A heart grows old,
clutched in a fisted hold.

Master of its own control.
But lost its soul.
It maybe whole.
But it never lives
until it learns to give.
And when it gives
it breaks off parts
which makes more room
for more broken hearts.
A heart unsung
has lost its tongue.
It has not song
when it don't belong.
It has a choice
to lend its voice.
But it bites it bitter
when it becomes quitter.
It dies a thousand deaths!
For it has not shared one 
single breath.
