Seashells

Strong and impenetrable outside
Empty within
But for some fine detail
If you care to look carefully

 

The most beautiful ones
Are broken – So fragile
They crumble when you touch them
Before returning them to the very waves
That destroyed them

 

Polished from decades of pummeling
Resting at the edge
Waiting to be discovered
Appreciated
And treasured

 

I am like a seashell
Battered by the tide
Hollowed of life
Shattered and scarred
Yet glistening brightly
Wherever I land
