The Bliss Of Being Broken

Latika Ojha | March 4, 2021
The Bliss Of Being Broken

Music flows on different notes,

From shards that fall apart;

The bliss of being broken –

The charm of broken hearts.


Of each mournful, plaintive croon,

Blooms courage, power and strength;

The bliss of being broken –

Rapturous rewards at length.


Each mortal wound leaves traces,

Of immortal streaks and marks;

The bliss of being broken –

Symbols of amorous sparks.


Shards, strength and marks together,

Wake a warrior within;

The bliss of being broken –

A battler with a wing; as winter turns to spring!


And then the light seeps in,

To mend the painful cracks;

The bliss of broken things –

As wabi sabi they’re back!
