part of the beauty with which we were crafted,
the genius; fragility invites gentleness.
our hairline fractures allow luminescence
to dance with infinite grace against
the canvas of creation.
betrayed, it is our curse.
a blessing, it reveals
the resilience of love,
the heft of forbearance,
the endurance of mercy.
