Exchange program

exchange program

Took my battered heart
bruised feelings down
to the exchange program.
While I stood in line
all vision could see was tears
ears heard stories of fear
abuse, heartbreak and loneliness.
I found myself asking why
was life this unkind?,
the more I seen, heard
made me step out of line
lucky to be able to withstand
what I thought was misery.
As my heart bled for those
who have been shattered,
disillusioned beyond return,
I slowly walked back home
heart in hand
placed ice packs on bruises
thankful I still had strength
to overcome life
mend my heart, make a stand.

    There is a Japanese art called Kintsugi, it is the repairing a broken pot with a lacquer dusted with gold powder. It can be so beautiful.
    The thing with a broken heart that I have discovered personally is that it can heal, you can go on and pull the pieces together, hold them together with gold dust and love more beautifully than before.

      Very interesting, repairing. Yes, to go on is quite a challenge but doable. Thank you very much! 🙂
