clay jugs near stone wall of ancient building


I fix those pieces everyday
to carry my part of burden.
sometimes i go on
even when some of it have falllen
i stand up again tall
gathering and putting them together.
With every drop
i carry in my broken pieces
I serve my purpose
i try to mend others
sometimes make them stronger.

You cant see those cracks
So carefully fixed
I don’t let my pieces scatter
to make sure not to prick others
Even as i am providing
I too will need help holding .

With only a hope
till my last piece can carry a drop
I want to keep playing my part.
I will keep going with these broken pieces
I know I cant mend it now.
I know how its is to be broken
to fix every time and make it work.
To see them falling apart
And still gluing them together
Till they can hold on one more time together.

I know so i don’t want you to be broken
I will put every piece together
till i can help you hold together.
Just one wish i make of you
For every part of my broken pieces
Don’t break another soul
Its difficult to put them together .
Broken is not as whole
Its just fixed with cracks together.
I know how it is to be broken.
Don’t let yourself be broken
Nor break any other soul.

    1. thank you Shanky , yes life is really a tough road but more than tough is to keep carrying all of ourselves even those that get lost along the path.
