How To Explain the Void

Life is a broken heart
in a paper cup
floating among things unsaid
It's realization through mistakes
Redemption through forgiveness
It's finding humility in a puddle of tears
you helped create
Life is being sorry
when you're not sure why
It's knowing how to spot a lie
and never dipping it in denial
Life is letting go of your insides
when they clamor for freedom
It's being hollowed out
so that someone you love can find joy.

    Happily, I was drawn in by the title; an enjoyable piece; loved the concept and message of your poem; the phrase 'humility in a puddle of tears' struck a cord within me; wonderfully written! -Joe Breunig, Reaching Towards His Unbounded Glory
