Peace somewhere in the pieces

May we find peace
Somewhere In the pieces
When we must come undone

Losing our ability
To hold ourselves together
In the face of life’s tragedies
May we fall apart beautifully

Knowing that eventually
We will pull ourselves back together
Forever changed
With some cracks remaining
But back together all the same

May the cracks in our soul
Created by the lost pieces of ourselves
Shine brightly as beacons
To other suffering beings
Letting them know they are not alone
And that they will survive the pain
