“But I want to tell them that
all of this
is just debris
left over when we finally decide
to smash all the things we thought we used to be,
and if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself,
get a better mirror,
look a little closer,
stare a little longer,
cos there’s something inside you that made you keep trying
despite everyone who told you to quit.
You built a cast around your broken heart
and signed it yourself,
you signed it, “They were wrong.”
