My answer to my poem from Sept 2011 "Broken" which I often wish I hadn't written.


A shattered mirror
with a twisted and battered frame
I was quick to turn the blame outwards
but I know the exact moment
the action
the words
I wrote
that did the breaking

I whisper to myself
"I am worthy
I am created noble
I am whole"

Warm hands
envelope me
let the flow of happy open within me
his face of gentle joy in this
our moment

take the closed up, barred gates
and fling them open
fill me
with us

Let that golden glue caress the sharp edges
bring the pieces back together
beautify the features
that are me
let this be the day I re-learn to
give myself away fully
think myself worthy
of the gift of our love

Thoughts of strength and inner-resources come to mind. This seems to be healing poem, and an invitation for joy. What could be nicer?
