I am very similar
To my porcelain skin,
Smooth on the surface
Yet hollow within.
If you look closely
You can trace the tracks,
Of this worn exterior
That has started to crack.
I’m strong & sturdy
Yet a fragile little thing,
My strength is carried
On my broken wings.
Just one last drop
I will fail to exist,
As history will scatter
Into a porcelain mist.
