People always say "you can teach old dogs new tricks,"

But will never say "you can fix what's broken."

What if what's broken doesn't want to be fixed.

What if being broken defines them.

People say "Don't let it define you,"

But the "you" they know is what it has defined.

They say "pick up the pieces and go on with life,"

But what if the pieces are too sharp and cut you as you pick them up.

Its easier to say than do,

Dont try and fix what's broken until you know how they broke.
