Broken….a poem



The path toward wholeness

is not straight and narrow.

It is curvy,

It is windy,

sometimes it goes left

sometimes it goes right

sometimes it takes you back around

to the place where you started..

You think you have left

old baggage behind

only to find

you still have  it with you…..

exorcised demons

lurking still

in the recesses

of your mind…

The path to wholeness

is really quite a mess

as you still carry

your  broken parts,

your bruised ego,

your broken heart,

and your sullied soul……

The path to wholeness

really doesn’t have an end

more like a nemesis

there is always something new to mend….

and so the broken me,

with my bruises

and badges of a well worn life

continue step by step

and turn by turn

that I may walk into your heart

and find that the brokenness

never really did matter…..
