Broken Glass - Poem by Casey Tucker

Shattered, smashed or cracked.
These are all different forms of broken glass.

It may splinter, cut or scar you,
without correct handling, you will find the truth.
That broken glass cannot be mended
Even the strongest glue will still reveal shards.

It is caused by carelessness and neglect.
when mistreated, dropped or thrown
Broken glass will be everywhere,
So best to watch your toes.

Imbedded into your skin
Having to wait for it to grow out or grow in
A piece of memory to stay with you forever
To remind you of the broken glass you once cherished.

But a mixture of broken glass can be used as a mosaic
So there can be a positive if you open your eyes.
A beautiful picture created out of mess and chaos.
To give the Broken Glass another chance.

    ''give the Broken Glass another chance''

    is the glass half full or half empty..? it depends.. always half full for the optimist, always half empty for the pessimist.. ;)

    thanks for sharing, Casey

    So nicely envisioned and beautifully depicted. Broken glass can't be mended but a mixture of broken glass can be used as a mosaic, truely speculated. Thanks for sharing.....10 (Report) Reply
