CRACKS

Broken Glass By Mads Perch

The inconvenient truth is that we are all broken

That the fragile remains of our existence cannot be hidden

We fragrantly judge one another

Blind to the cracks in our character

Unable to see the truth that lies beneath

I watched, maybe even felt something today

Something out of the ordinary

As fictional as it was I encountered a truth

A truth so basic to human nature that it cannot be questioned

At the root of it all the success of another breeds contempt

An insatiable need to surpass others

Seeking to achieve success regardless of the source

Craving the victories of others without an understanding of their battles

And the source of their victories

Opening our already fractured souls 

Leaving our spirits open to negative influences

I have learnt that as saturated as this world is

As all consuming 

I have a place

A road carved out for my own

My fractured pieces 

The building blocks of my success

Remember we may fall

We may crack 

But at the end of it all

STILL. 

WE.

RISE.
