The Power of a Broken-Open Heart, by Julie Interrante.


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 sanctioned 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.
