If I found you, on your knees,
trying desperately to collect the shattered pieces of your heart-
I would kneel beside you and help you pick them up.
I would not cast a blind eye,
and pretend I had not seen you.

If I saw that your hands had been cut,
by the very shards of hope you were trying so hard to gather-
I would take your hands in mine, and hold them until the pain subsided.
Then I would kiss every wound- no matter how big or how small,
until I was sure you would be able to use your hands again.

If you were crying from the fear that you'd never be able to pick up everything,
I would hold you until your tears stopped, and I would comfort you with gentle words.
But I would not lie to you- I would never lie.
The heart is a frail thing- once shattered, it can never be fully repaired.
Parts will remain missing, and the mended hope will always bear cracks.

If we found that we'd gathered all that we were able,
and that there were a fine powder remaining of what we could not collect.
I would blow that powder into the wind and have you watch it fly.
Then I would tell you that because part of you was with the wind,
part of you would remain forever free from hardship.

If you were in need of aid-
if you needed help putting the pieces of your heart back together.
I would stay beside you and help you put every last piece into its proper place.
Then, I would lock your frail heart in a protective case,
and give it to you with the key to unlock it.

Then, after I had done all of that, I would turn to leave-
but if you tried to prevent me from going, I would stop.
If only to hear a simple thank you and goodbye, I would stop.
However, should you ask me why I'd stopped to help you in the first place,
I would gladly answer you in honesty.

My answer would simply be,
“I was in your place once, and none stopped to help me,
so for sake of preventing that sorrow in others,
I will stop to help them whenever I see their suffering.”
Then I would smile at you earnestly and wait for your response.

I assume that past that point,
we would talk and socialize with each-other for a while,
until we came to our understanding.
You would learn that despite my outward appearance,
that I bear the same scars as you on the inside of my being.

Then, after all was said and done, we would embrace.
As for what I think may happen beyond that point-
I would gladly remain friend to you and call you as my kin.
However, that would all depend of course,
on if you would like me by your side until the bitter end of things.
I actually started this a week or so ago, I've only just found the drive to finish it. This is dedicated to someone- :icondeath-riot: I hope you like it, "Little brother".

What do you mean, what did I say?
When he called himself a whore and I made him explain himself to me, I told him he was not such a person and that he deserved better.
When I found that he was covered in scars I told him not to look at himself with a hateful, disgusted gaze because he is a beautiful person.
I continue to tell him that I care- and I will admit that I've come to love him.

(This might be some tough love)
There is nothing wrong with you. Anyone- I don't care if they'er a stranger or someone close to you- who makes you feel as if you are a waste of space has no business being in the world, because those who spend their time putting others down have no business being in the world!
You are not an error- there is NOTHING wrong with you!
You are a human being, someone with wonderful feelings and emotions, and a heart that can be easily hurt. 
Don't you EVER believe any senseless negativity directed at you, got it?

My heart shattered when I was young and no one was around to help me pick it back up. I've made it a life goal to do for others what was never done for me.

That's so sad you were left alone with your pain. No one should suffer alone without anyone around them to help, or reach a hand.
It's really nice of you, you still want to give others, what you never had.

This world is a dark place- nowadays whenever people see a man with a sign on the street saying that he has no home and no livelihood, they choose to believe that he is faking it to make easy money off of them.
I would be that 1 person who would try to take that person in and give them a place to stay.

That's very sweet, not many people would be willing to do that. You are absolutely right, this world is a dark place. People should care about each other more often. There's so many people living in pain, getting ignored by others. Also, many people have lost the true meaning of love, which is sad. First of all, too many people are selfish in love. All they do is take and they don't give. Second of all many people will give up their love too easily, they don't fight for each other anymore. In relationships, they break up for the stupidest, most selfish reasons, or they just don't care anymore.

Too many people are not willing to give or to care for another person anymore. 
You seem like a person, with good values and great spirit.

I am, but it seems that my way of thinking comes with a bit of a price. I'm not exactly fit for society so I'm more likely to become the people I would strive to help.
