"A Birthday for a 16 Year Old"

You’re not broken…
You’re just breaking away
You’re not fallin’
You’re just making your way.

Where our love binds us
Our strength finds us
We sometimes forget
And let it blind us

To where you need to go
A path that is paved for you
With hearts that beat
With love that’s there for you.

So gather your things
The things that keep you safe
Remember always what brings
the courage and the faith.

Your family’s love…
Your inner voice…
Your place in the world…
will always be your choice.

2014 The Broken Art

"Old Loves"

These old buildings
All have their stories.
Standing up to testify
giving faith to past glory.

Faded colors… naked brick…
Old paint that’s worn thin.
Like unravelling lies,
peeled back to reveal past sins.

These stories take flights to tell
Crashing in still dusty landings.
Each floor adding shouts and laughter…
Some running….
Some standing…

If you walk through them now
Graceful steps softly echoing,
Lifting against cracked drywall
Repeating but never revealing.

What lies behind stories
Behind doors…
Beyond locks…

With no keys left behind,
and no truth to unwind.
