Broken… a haiku

muscle memory

sense of who you are inside

liars, all of them.


new limitations

heartbreaking in their number

pull you down, down, down.


despair becomes you

inner screaming, outer smile

hide it from the world.


learn to be broken

make mosaics of your self

see beauty in cracks.


be your creator

build something new within you

make your broken whole.


new self emerges

introduce yourself proudly

you have survived.
