Scratched Record

What if I don't want to be fixed?
What if
the only thing scarier
than being broken
is not
being broken?
What if...?
What if...?
What if...?



On inspiration for this piece: This idea was pulled from Poetic Asides's 2015 April PAD Challenge: Day 12. "For today’s prompt, write a damage poem."

Really we say that grass on the the other side is always green but we never know!

I really think a lot of people feel this way.

Very insightful--there are many reasons why we sometimes would rather stay broken. Excellent poem!

So many questions...I think it's scary to not being broken ~
