I am not broken

I am not broken…
But I was
And…
I was for a long time
And…
I grieve for all that time
Wasted…
In pursuit of nothing
And
Everything I was not prepared for,
Everything I was not capable of achieving,
Instead of fixing myself
I lied to myself
Insisting I was whole…

It took a catastrophic event,
Which I still don’t understand,
To bring fundamental change
To bring a healing wave,
Where I found new things,
True things,
Ways of being…

I am not broken…
But I was
And…
Because
I have found a new way of living
I have found a new way of relating to the world
I have refused to go back there
