How is it?

How is it
that after all this time,
my heart hasn’t rebuilt.
It took two years, two months
and five days to build the Eiffel Tower.
It took nine years
to build the Statue of Liberty.
It took 22 years
to build the Taj Mahal.
It took 1229 years to build Rome.
It took 2300 years
to build the Great Wall.
How is it,
that I think my journey
is a long time?
And, what if,
my beautiful heart
is meant to stay
cracked open?
