My Garden of Broken Things


I hold this chalice virgin, but
This glass is already broken
It shines radiant in the light
My garden is a garden of broken things
Lives like glass already broken in youth
The wounds I suffer I suffered in the womb
The sun I gaze upon rises in the dark and falls at dawn
The end I embrace
Lives in the precious moment
And so releases me
