This Heart

This Heart

This heart is made of gold,
a shiny strong stone
worth more than rubies and silver
and bronze
First-place, first-rate
winner in life.

This heart is made of sugar,
sticky and sweet,
melted with heat,
combines well with others,
makes even the bitter a tasty treat.
Easily sprinkled all over the world,
and only gets sweeter as you add more.

This heart of gold may be built to last,
while this heart of sugar can be reduced fast.
But if you ask me 
which one I would choose
I’d rather have sugar

than stone.
