Poem: The Cracks of Compassion

jagged

Perhaps nothing is more precious

Than having your heart broken

Or your will to live destroyed

When your heart breaks

The cracks let in

All the limitless love

You had previously denied it

And when you stop

Wanting to live for yourself

You are graced with the power

To live for every single being

Break and bend, my friend

Break the finite

To become the infinite

And bend yourself

To become

A perfect circle
