Out of Fragments a Rebirth

Broken Rose
Originally uploaded by Cait Surreal.

Shattered pieces
Like a broken glass
That I want to pick
Fallen petals
Out of flower womb
Yet tears don’t fall
From the flower’s eyes
You once hear that cry
When a glass crumbs
Countless pieces
Shattered on floor
And I’m the flower
Can’t pick her petals back
Glass pieces can’t be glued
To what has once been: a glass
But I can begin a new life
As out of fallen petals
Seeds had fallen
To rebirth a new life
Not a duplicate
Of what has broken
A new begging of life
A new plant
From a fallen seeds
From shattered pieces
I Can Survive

We do survive no matter what. However much we might say otherwise.

I like this piece. It is filled with so much hope, and it doesn't try to lighten up things falsely and superficially.
