Least said... soonest mended


Broken beyond repair
the jagged edges cannot be stuck together
the severed pieces are strewn around
refusing to fit.
Reproach changes nothing.
Regret is insincere.
Maintaining integrity
demands moving on
recognising brokenness
and letting it be.
Resisting the temptation
to scoop up the pieces
and glue them back together.
Accepting that some things broken
cannot be fixed.
Not edifying
but death defying.
