Too Fragile To Break

Broken in million pieces!!!

Confusion:

Did I slip, was I pushed, both?

An ambulance,

Worried people,

Surgery,

Experts glued me together.

Barely could see the fine cracks covered by make-up

All that mattered was the illusion of perfection, after all.

Again and again and again,

The “accident.” repeated: pushed, slipped, fell…

Not sure!

Ambulance, surgery, fixed by the experts…

I know the play by heart, I could do it alone,

Be the hero of my own play.

By habit, I trip, I fall on a hard floor,

The pain is great, the floor hard,

But not harder than the core of me!

I look around:

No ambulance,

No people,

No surgery or experts.

Only a wall. An object with no feelings.

I lean against it

I think the advantage was I didn’t have to thank

An inanimate object!

What a relief!

Slowly, I leaned on it and pulled myself up.

I knew I wasn’t required, and no one cared,

Yet, I head my own voice scream in my own ears: “Thank You, WALL!”

My lips touched the rough cold cement.

No one heard,

No one cared,

The wall was ungrateful!

My ears felt numb,

My lips bleeding.

I was happy to have done the right thing,

Not because it mattered to others,

But because it mattered to me.

I respected  myself enough to

Follow the flexibility of my consciousness.

I cared not what the world might think

But how my heart felt 

When doing what was right!

My core might be frail enough to break,

It didn’t!

Life required flexibility and foolish people

Didn’t comprehend the difference

Between weakness and flexibility.

To survive one must flexible.

Weakness, will kill you!

Simple to tell the difference…
