Hearts of steel .....Verse

Didn't do any good at all to
bare my soul
When at the same time we
must steel our hearts
Cold dark and rusting iron
becomes but dust for the ages
Linked of only molecular form with other
less precious metals
Does no good at all I think
as I rip the page from the pad and throw it
I will write no more
nor feel no less
I fear I will love never again and
trust even less
You've won another round
and as rust begins to form
I wonder
Why
Why bother
