I am a puzzle
with thousands of pieces.
I may never finish
getting myself together
and I may lose a few pieces
along the way
but maybe I’ll only
lose the edges
not the insides.

  1. I love this, but you need all the outside pieces to hold yourself together! Seriously, though, I get what you’re saying, so well put…

    Even if you come apart there’s always a way to be fixed. Great writing Sandra.

  7. Nice. You sound like some of the toys and a bike I built for my daughter. I put them together without using all of the parts.

  8. Well with out the outside pieces, you won’t have any sharp edges, at least! 😀 This is a very cool little poem, I like the metaphor a lot!

    Lovely! Perhaps last night was the night for insomnia. I barely slept.
    This reminds me of that John Legend song- “love your curves and all your edges.” Let’s hope we have lots more curves than edges.
