it’s good that a face
is not like glass
that cracks and marks and holes
become memories
stored, saved, forgotten and buried

it’s bad that a face
is not like glass
broken it would serve as a warning
showing that some things
will remain

it’s good that life
is not like a poem
always more complex
more bitter, more happy
darker and brighter
with all the shades of grey.
history shall remain in the past
and a cut on a cracked face of glass
is unfortunate but no huge deal
realize there’s cracks
and then go on
because the sun is up today.
