Heavy is the Heart of Gold

Heavy is the heart of gold
When all those it tried to save
Continue on to just go cold
And find their way into the grave.

Heavy is the heart of gold
When every word it tried to say
Gets swallowed up in tales twice-told,
Lost in shades of gray.

Heavy is the heart of gold
When none will help to lift it;
I wonder, if someone just took hold,
Could something then be different?

            1. Heh… And what’s altruism got to do with it? See, there is always a return, even if it’s just a good feeling, the knowledge that you did a right thing. Even altruists get their wages. And hobbyists might have it even better, *because* it’s not a job; because they do it ’cause they want to do it, instead of out of obligation.
