Looking out through the cracked window
I see the cracks glistening in the sunlight
The shattered hopes and dreams
I can almost hear they say
What an Idiot!
I close the curtains to stop the sunlight
The darkness hides the cracks, as if they don’t exist
But I hear the song of a bird, echoing into the darkness of my room
I open the curtains once again…
Only to see the cracks smiling at me…
I close my eyes
Look beyond! To the far away sky..
I hear the bird sing once again…
The clouds still floating
The sun still shining
The stars are there somewhere, not visible to my naked eye
Life exists beyond these cracks!
I tell myself
Why focus on what’s broken?
Why focus on what’s left behind?
Why can’t I see the little rainbow shining through the dark clouds?
Why can’t I see the river reflecting life itself?
Why can’t I see the Sun dancing around the clouds?
It’s time to look beyond the cracked window!
It’s time to find life again, in a breath of fresh air…
It’s time to look back at this miracle called Life!
