The Unbroken

Rashani Rea

 

There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken.

There is a shatteredness out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow beyond all grief which leads to joy

And a fragility out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space too vast for words

Through which we pass with each loss

Out of whose darkness we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound

Whose serrated edges cut the heart as we break open

To the place inside which is unbreakable and whole

While learning to sing.
