make us Human
all our Colors
We are all broken.
Each one of us has chips and cracks,
like the dishes we eat off of and cups from which we drink.
The Japanese call it kintsughi and consider this to be the gift of pottery.
We tend to disrespect our broken parts and throw them to the wind.
Make up cracks, and so does our skin.
Wrinkles form and we inject them to hide the flaws.
Nothing wrong with that, but it won’t make us perfect, because nothing is.
Bones break but are repaired with exercise, or screws and plates.
Hearts break and sometimes can be mended and nursed back to heath.
Other times it’s better to cry it out, cut your loses and carry on.
Glass breaks but is smoothed by the sea which we collect in jars and use to charm our homes.
Cars break, thank god for mechanics.
Waves break, catch it if you can.
Banks break and the stock market crashes, but the bull always breaks the bear.
We have mental brakes and should take mental health breaks so we don’t fall apart,
Humpty Dumpty was put back together again and so can we be.
Yes, we all are broken, so cut yourself some slack,
Get out your Gorilla glue and be kind to you.
Come on now, get up and get on with your day!

Have a beautiful day and remember no matter how broken you might feel today, love yourself more, get out and move, shake it off and do something kind for you and then someone else. The gift is in the giving.
