Shattered

Crushed

Broken

 

When the glass is clear

Transparent

You can see the light on the other side

The rainbows reflect off the harsh edges

The break is not as deep

 

The pain is still perceptible

The shattering is still devastating

 

But you can see how the pieces fit back together

 

When the glass is made of gold

The sparkle fades

The luminosity dissipates

There is no light, no rainbows

The fragments too heavy, too wrecked

 

The pain is more palpable

The shattering more jarring

 

The pieces won’t fit back together how they used to

 

A heart of golden glass

Is it worth it?

When it shatters, its pieces are left with others

Not stolen

But gifted without ever expecting anything in return

 

Selfless love will take its toll

The shattered golden glass will pierce and tear

 

And finally you let go

 

You let the glittering gold shards leave

Knowing that they are polished and bright with someone else

Take pride in the love and care you are capable of giving

Because as effortless as it is for you

It can be the world’s greatest burden on others

 

A heart of golden glass never weakens

Its love never fails

 

In all its shattered pieces, it is whole.
