Broken and Repaired

The clear lens that we see through
Scratched and smudged with time
Fragile and delicate to start
But tempered by the years
When broken, sharp cutting shards
Melted back to solid clarity
By the furnace of life’s education
That we may look past
The little flaws in our visionary path
Out of the transparent patches
To the cloudless scenes of brilliance
We grow stronger by experience
Wiser by our internal struggles
That we may rise to our full height
Complete sparkling crystal
Sturdy, grounded core
Clear and whole
Unto ourselves
