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
And treasured


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

  1. What a moving, beautiful read. It is so heartfelt to me and I’m sure many. Thanks for helping others to take a minute to reflect on not only how far we have come , but how much we have accomplished. Hugmies
