A Shattered Man
by Hashim R. Morris
Even though our joy and happiness is elicited from
within. It seems to become more fulfilling when
inspired by a lover or friend!
Broken pieces of colored glass is what makes
up picturesque depiction seen in grand cathedrals during
Sunday Mass. Was it not the constant hammering on
a block of marble that resulted in the statue of David
that the world now marvel?
A diamond during its initial find is crud and rough and
must be cut and buffed before producing its brilliant
A block of clay must be beaten and molded into place to
create a valuable and treasured vase.
Grapes must be stomped upon and trampled under feet, then
stored in vast for years at a time before acquiring that resplendid
taste, befitting to be considered a connoisseurs wine!
No doubt in my present life
situation, I too can be looked
upon as a shattered man. But
like the Phoenix from its own
ashes, I too shall rise again!!
