A Poem by Joseph LaBarge

Staring hard/
at broken glass/
wonder how/
you'll make it last/
never knew/
just what you had/
was so breakable so thin/
like porcelain//

all alone/
upon your shelf/
so untouchable/
by everyone else/
crying softly/
there you fell/
so breakable/
so thin/
like porcelain/

and shattering/
upon the floor/
you saw what/
you haven't before/
it left you feeling/
oh so torn/
so breakable/
so thin/
like porcelain/

and now you show/
hiding scars/
at least you found out/
who you are/
never knew/
you had a heart/
so breakable/
so thin/
like porcelain/
