how do you fix being broken? | poetry by: s.s.

Updated: Aug 30, 2020

"lookin at the reflection I ask myself “how do you fix being broken?”

first we examine the pieces, hold them close and look at every detail

second, we glue our mind to always address the way we speak to ourselves

because I am my biggest critique

and if I’m beat myself down soon they’ll be nothing left to build up.

third, we take our imaginary pieces, place them in the xtra large duffle bag with our pain an any feelings left in our mind to castaway, then throw it all away.

because the fourth step is to remember that being broken is how we have room to let the light in.

you see, we are not pieces.

we are always whole.

an we are only stories to be told, not broken souls."
