KINTSUGI



[Kintsugi (golden joinery) or kintsukuroi (golden repair) is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. - Wikipedia]


We are all imperfect-

broken

scarred

fragmented


Breaking

Falling apart

Shattering

Into a million pieces

Small and big


Scars-

like lingering memories

like the blood in my veins

Not just skin deep

But permeates into

my empty soul

Fragmented

Butchered ruthlessly


But I won’t break

Or disintegrate

Into nothing

But a sorry puddle of tears

Or drown

into the ocean of fears


I will fix myself

I will glue it up

I will pick up

Every broken piece

That’s a part of me....

and

Put it all back together

With the

gold of courage

Silver of hope

I will create a new me.


Slowly but surely

I will be whole again....
