Kintsugi

And everything I ever wanted spills out of me,
or at least everything I thought I wanted breaks
like a strand of pearls rolling endlessly and I?
“But let them go,” and don’t bother to salvage all
that’s been broken and wait instead for the
mending of gold to fill every crack, every crevice,
so that one day I might look again in wonder
of what happened to this shell of a body and how
on earth, but by the grace of God’s hand, I stand.
