Out of which comes the unbroken;
A shatteredness out of which
Blooms the unshatterable.
There is a sorrow
Beyond all grief which leads to joy
And a fragility
Out of whose depths emerges strength.
There is a hollow space
Too vast for words
Through which we pass with each loss,
Out of whose darkness
We are sanctioned into being.
There is a cry deeper than all sound
Whose serrated edges cut the heart;
As we break open
To the place inside which is
Unbreakable and whole;
While we learn to sing.
