The Unbroken - a poem

There is a brokenness

out of which comes the unbroken,

a shatteredness

out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow

beyond all grief which leads to joy

and a fragility

out of whose depths emerges strength.


There is a hollow space

too vast for words

through which we pass with each loss,

out of whose darkness

we are sanctified into being.


There is a cry deeper than all sound

whose serrated edges cut the heart

as we break open to the place inside

which is unbreakable and whole,


while learning to sing.


- Rashani Réa


A poem featured in The Wild Edge of Sorrow. p. 120
