I Am Broken*

I am broken;
My bones have been broken;
My heart has been broken;
My spirit has been broken;
Relationships have been broken;
I am here broken;
Everyone is broken;
Bones have been broken;
Hearts have been broken;
Spirits have been broken;
Relationships have been broken;
They are there broken;
We are there broken;
Together, we are here broken;
“No one righteous will have bones broken”;
To fulfill scripture, Jesus’ bones were not broken;
That is metaphor for enduring being broken;
The righteous have been broken;
Jesus has been broken;
We don’t claim to be just, just broken;
We don’t claim to be Jesus, just broken;
The righteous are here broken;
Jesus is here broken;
We are all here broken;
Together, we are healing.

*idea from a meditation by Henri Nouwen
