The Soul Spot: She Works Just Fine Broken

by Samantha Davis


She works just fine broken.


The feeling is

overwhelming.

Life seems almost

debilitating.

Summoning strength to move

appears more wish filled

and less perspicuous.

Yet, the sun rises,

I start on a new.

“Today will be different”

I affirm with a tone of despair.

As I sift through the wreckage

I notice more pieces than before.

When did things get this bad?

Maybe they always were.

The ship is now patched.

I made sure of it—

not one spot missed.


She’s ready to sail

a little shaky,

but floating.

Withstanding the force

of mother nature isn’t concerning.

After all, the repair

was an endeavor.

‘Stronger’ than before,

I brave out on to the water.

The waves are treacherous.

She can’t be damaged by

the sea, fore it means

the end.

No one ever thought

to reveal the importance

of life boats.

The make shift life

-jacket has holes.

Many believe she’s not sea worthy.

Could what they exclaim be true?

Words crash in like waves,

causing havoc. Internal

chaos erupts. What was

already difficult seemed

impossible. Could she do it?

But she makes it back to port,

docks for the day.


She works just fine broken

The reminder needed to

start another day.
