Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

The Broken


“There is no perfection, only beautiful versions of brokenness.”
Shannon L. Alder

Messages in broken bottles

float out into a broken sea

Now they are artifacts from another world

Sunken never to resurface

The broken, loved no less

Accepted, healed and loved that much more

Eyes restored

The walls come down slowly

What once was is now a distant memory

Imprint of the old world erased

Dead seeds

I walk towards the purpose of being

Broken and beautiful
