Broken: no need to be fixed

poppies

I am broken, and I do not want to be fixed,

As my brokenness is my bliss.

 

I am broken, and I do not need to be fixed,

As my brokenness is the fountain from where I drink my strength.

 

I am broken, and I do not want to be fixed,

As fixing might force me to forget what I feel.

 

I was broken, and I was told what to feel,

As only the world, and not me, knew better what I had to endure.

 

I was broken, and I was told what to be,

As only the world, and not me, knew better what “I” really means.

 

I was broken, and I decided to look at the cracks,

Look at the wounds and not cover them with a patch.

 

I was broken, and I decided not to play the game,

The same old game of “all is good”,

The same old game that the world expected me to assume.

 

I was broken, and I decided to make my own rules,

As the hurts are mine and so the marks they left behind.

 

I was broken, and I decided I am brave enough,

To start again and show the world

That my brokenness is a part of me,

The part that must be exposed,

And not buried deep only because some might not like what they spot.

 

I am broken, and I decided to keep by my side,

Only the ones not scared by my deep, bleeding wounds,

Only the ones that can glance far behind the profound lacerating scars.

 

I am broken, and I do not want to be fixed,

As my brokenness is what makes me free.

 

Please do not forget that we are all broken,

And that’s what makes us feel alive.

 

Please do not let anyone tell you,

How to wear or how to feel your pain,

As the pain is yours and yours only,

Not for the crowds to cheer it out loud, forever in vain.

 

Please do not forget that we are all broken,

And that’s what makes us feel alive.

 

Please do not forget that we are all broken,

United in the eternal quest of reaching the so much desired healing peace.

 

 

Lots of love,

Sharing Simple Words
