Broken Potery - Poem by Deci Hernandez

Who has handled you that your
Life is now shattered?

Did you fall from a shelf
Or were you dropped by the way?

Are you aged by climate or by years?
How has what was in your
Vessel been spilled?

In secret do tears tear out
And in secret the handle broken
But now all has been made clear

Though you are failing
Have you saved knowledge
That you might not perish?

The clock is in it's final second
And an eternity afterward

    It's not a bad thing to make mistakes, but the big question is, did you learn from your mistakes? It's not a sin to fall, but while standing up, did you pick up something good? Thus the lines: 'Though you are failing/Have you saved knowledge? ' thanks (Report) Reply
