The world is full of broken people
finding their way through the shattered glass
of heartbreak, sadness, and lost memories.
It cuts, it hurts, and it lets us bleed –
driving you away from what the heart needs.
Blinded by the bright darkness of our struggling souls;
feeling alone and out of control.
But there is beauty in our brokenness,
as there’s still love to be found in this world.
We are the pieces of light and love –
glued together with kindful words.
Even though we are shattered,
we’re the art of the battles we have won.
Like mosaic, we’re beautiful but broken pieces of glass,
fitted together to create the wonder that is our soul.
