Use The Broken

When something breaks 

you can decide to look at the pieces 

scattered and shattered
jagged and jarring

the pieces of a previous something
a something that no longer resembles what once was 

And you can throw them away


You can pick up those broken pieces
carefully and with loving hands

choose the perfect glue

a glue made of the resilience formed after the breaking  
to piece them back together

and see it as a now stronger something that
You built on your own

opposing the other thing that

someone else built For You 

that was weak enough to fall apart in the first place

You then have become your own keeper
your own maker

your own Whole and Complete thing

The broken pieces were not the proof of a broken existence

The broken pieces became the parts that were used to build a stronger model
