fallen

i am shattered to a thousand pieces
fallen, scattered on the floor
i am taped and glued
and every touch is painful
moving forward, taking shape
i am balanced, back up on display
stronger now than ever before

i am searching my reflection
for something familiar
only when the light lands just right
can i see the old bits of me
reconfigured, reimagined, ready

and this is life, i’ve come to learn
to fall and break and heal
to start again with wounds and experience
to see with optimism
to believe what’s next is better

in the sun i held her in the sand, with the sea in the air
