Brokenness — by Millie Mestril

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

Brokenness — by Millie Mestril

Post by Welles » Sat Nov 28, 2015 5:46 pm

Brokenness

Sometimes a broken heart

brings courage,

a destitution that allows growth,

and the ego-less truth of self.

Sometimes a broken heart

brings a hiatus

to show how real compassion

dances intimately

with selflessness.

Sometimes a broken heart

is a disposition,

a clarity of temperament,

and the response of spirit.

Sometimes a broken heart

is just a break

that needs the fracture to

force the heart to expand,

to reach inner wisdom,

without the distraction

of someone else’s needs.

And,

sometimes a broken heart

brings you to your knees,

closer to the Divine,

praying for forgiveness

while negotiating

for another chance

at seeing the world

through the eyes of love.

Thanks Welles! Makes you think doesn't it? I for one always would have run from "brokenness" as it is not a pleasant feeling/experience. But from this poem it seems there are important opportunities stirring within this thing we call a broken heart.
