A MIND SHATTERS

BEANERY ONLINE LITERARY MAGAZINE

A MIND SHATTERS

THE PHOTODOCTOR

 
a mind shatters
like a dropped plate

the glue that holds
your mind together
does not hold
 
your world falls apart
because the center
your mind
will not hold
things together
 
a mind
a life
a family
a town
a city
a state
a country
the world
all fall apart
when the center
does not hold
 
a mind shatters
God has given us
the glue
to save this life
and eventually the world

the glue is love

the love of families
the love of friends
can reconstruct
a shattered mind
and the world

  1. Nice poem Photodoctor—you’ve managed to take a universal theme full circle from local to global back to local.
