Beauty in being Broken.

Beauty in being Broken.

A Poem by sonnie ibadah

The art of incompletion...


There’s beauty in being broken.

Because it is only by realizing something is missing,

does it make what’s left meaningful.


There’s regret in words unspoken.

Because it is through the echoing silence,  

do you hear the answers that could have been.


There’s pain in memories forgotten.

Because it is in lingering absence,

that your heart aches to touch the unknown.


There’s peace in forgiveness.

It’s only after letting go,

do you feel the unbound lightness where resentment should have been.


There’s revenge in moving on.

Because it is through your walking away,

that they get to see all that you were.


There is bravery in making mistakes.

Because even loving wrong,

is better than the emptiness of not loving at all.



There is no grace in falling apart,

Just like there is no power in breaking hearts.

Because as much as the falling tears wash away the pain,

the broken pieces will leave you void and vain.
