day break

hearts are breaking

like the day breaks

every morning

 

a sliver of sunlight

stretches out from the horizon

until it is revealed in full

 

all is illuminated

all is made visible by the brightness

of that radiance

 

and we all awake

to that simple truth:

we must continue in this world broken

 

it will not slow down for us

the day, like our hearts,

keeps its own time

 

and we can hide in the shadows

even if we are afraid of the dark

but we cannot live there

 

we live in the day, in the moment,

and we proceed broken

until we are no longer broken

 

because the truth,

as painful as it may be,

can heal if we permit it
