Sometimes I wonder

What it would be like

if wearing your heart

on your sleeve

was a fashion statement.

If it was "in" to be vincible

to be visible

to be honest

and to show that truest

most authentic soul

instead of keeping it

bottled up and small.

To be real

and to fail

and to fall

and to feel.

If we branded and packaged it just so

could it sell?

Could it save us all?
