As Fragile And As Unique

Yes, our people have accomplished so many things.

They’ve discovered the wonders of our world,

Climbed the highest mountains,

Invented incredible things,

Even traveled to the moon and back.

But we can be fragile beings,

A moment of laughter can be driven to tears,

Broken by trust and fault,

Deceived by the most idiotic situations.

And we can be replenished,

Healed by love and trust,

Bandaged by the sand of times,

Recovered by the burden of family.

In the end,

We are fragile beings.

Broken by fault and fixed with love.


I love the idea of something beautiful, like a vase or a painting, that can be broken so easily. And while one might easily toss it aside, the others fixes it. The end result has more beauty than it did before because of someone’s talent, time and love.

Uniquely, I am showing the veracity of the human person. One can be so easily hurt and sad but can be easily fixed with love and trust. In the end, we are fragile beings. Broken by fault and fixed with love.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for more to come!
