Things can't always be fixed (and can't always be broken)

Things can't always be fixed (and can't always be broken)

Broken skin 

on the knee

of me, aged three

is something that a plaster

could cover and soothe


A broken bone

in the leg

of you, who knew

it was something that plaster

could cover and soothe


A broken tyre

on that car, 

of ours, a mar

that could be replaced

and covered and soothed


But a broken heart

and no joy

from a boy, whose toy

was you, where no words

could fix and soothe the pain 


And broken skin

from the mess

you're in, and over the din

of the voices in your head, 

nothing can fix and soothe you


And a broken home,

from the shouts

and the rage that's at a stage

where it won't go away, 

can't be fixed and soothed


Sometimes life isn't as simple

as a graze from the floor

or a clean break

or a bump on a journey 


Sometimes life is painful

and broken

and the wounds and the thoughts and the mess and the noise and the agony 

can't be fixed in a day or a week or a month or a year

but that's okay, and you're okay

because a soul isn't something that can be broken, 

completely
