I went through life thinking about "wrong."
I was dark thoughts of a dark world with a dark mind.
I lived divided, my holes made me wholly focused
On filling the emptiness.
But I wasn't broken... Only unfinished.

There are no answers to all of my questions...
I lack experience. I lack perspective.
I don't know anything - nothing makes sense -
Because I am a canvas, the brush, and the paint.
I am even the artist, and I'm painting my fate.
I'm not broken, just... unfinished.

I have my shadows, and they make my image.
I don't need fixing - I'm not wrong for being.
I'm a whole person, a whole painting in motion,
A tapestry growing, a river evolving.
I am not broken, and I'm not finished.

Now say this again, but say that it's you.
No more cutting yourself up,
Or tearing you down.
Say it again, and think of all others.
Those that you care for,
And those that you don't.
They don't need to be fixed -
They're not wrong for being -
None of them broken - only unfinished.

No matter what judgment you place on another,
No matter their actions,
No matter their trouble...
No one is broken. We're all just unfinished.

And you're not my brush, not my artist, nor paint.
And I wouldn't presume to edit your image,
Because you're unfinished and not quite like me...
I'm sharing this mainly because I think you can't see...
No one is broken. We're all just unfinished.

-Raven

Beautiful poem Nycto. It really speaks to me and where my journey has taken me. Facing the sides of ourselves we are told are wrong and bad, but only labels placed on us. Thank you for sharing <3

Thanks. I had the initial concept but I was having trouble getting it out, so I asked E and Tz to help with some inspiration. So I don't feel I can take full credit... But I'm glad it's resonating. :) <3

Yes very well said. Unfinished not broken, who is to say, what is normal or perfect.

Wow..This poem's tune is so refreshingly inspirational.I can hear the voiceless melodies hum. Thank you for sharing this amazing poem. Not only that, it has power in it's core of self expression, in the wisest of ways. You can just feel it. :)
