A circus shoe, his
ambition to trapeze the sky,
‘Fall’ they said, he didn't.

I am a broken person


Nothing happened to me to break me


I was born a broken person


The things that have occurred in my life so far are just things


And maybe they have framed me to a certain extent


And touched me to a certain extent


But they are not why I am broken


 


What is a broken person?


Only a broken person can say


And maybe we are all broken in some way


But when you see that something in someone else...


A connection, a private understanding occurs


 


There have been many attempts at describing being broken


A hole in your heart


A form of self loathing


Confession of sins


Psychotherapy


 


And many thoughts on how to mend


love, success, pain and punishment,


God (whichever one you believe in)


And maybe they work for you


And maybe they don't


Maybe they just distract you for a while


 


This is as far as I’ve come in my meagre 25 years


The limit of my self knowledge


And I know only this much


I am a broken person


Nothing happened to me to break me


I was born a broken person.
