Cracked

 

What purpose hath a china bowl

Replete with leaking cracks and holes?

This vessel first must be repaired

Before its waters can be shared.

And people too themselves must heal

The fractures from a past ordeal

Before their help can be dispersed,

Or else risk making matters worse;

We selfishly must fix our scars

To pour our love in others’ hearts.
