I’ve spent so much of my time
I’ve spent so much of my self 
Thinking I was the problem
Thinking I was at fault
Deserving of blame and shame

Now
How clearly I can see
None of it was meant just for me

The broken pieces 
The scars they’ve left

I thought they were mine 
And mine alone 

Little did I know 
That the reflection in those shards
Was the pain and suffering of the world 
Humanity’s collective broken spirit 

How delighted am I now 
To know 
That I do have a stake in the woes of this world 

For I’ve never seen a problem 
Real or imagined 
That could not benefit from my witnessing it

How joyous I am now 
To know
That I can share with the world 
What I’ve learned of seeking beauty and truth 
In a broken reflection
