I've walked on glass, and as my feet bled, I kept on
I've walked on rocks, stones, and broken bricks, but still I kept on
I've walked on sandiness, pain, and shame, and not even that could stop me
I've walked to a place of which I thought I would never come back from, but yet I'm here
I've walked so much, and went a long way, but I am not done walking, because I live to walk another day

You must learn how to make it on the broken pieces. -Rev. Louise Williams-Bishop
I thought, "Rev! You are talking to me!" Because that's what I did! I made it on the broken pieces of life.
I picked up and placed down my feet all over the hard pieces of life and walked all over them which lead me to where I am today. Without the brokenness, the fragmented, sharp, and hard pieces in my life, I wouldn't be who I am today. And I love me.
The broken pieces, the hard and trying situations helped give me deeper knowledge, clearer understanding, and wisdom with regard to self. The broken pieces opened my eyes of awareness as to who I wanted to be and where I wanted to go. Every time that I would run into something that tried to stop me it became separated into pieces. And each time, I would pick up the pieces, examine them, lay them down, and walk all over them. Yes, it hurt! And there were times that I thought I couldn't do it, but my feet are strong and I kept on! In like manner, I'm continuing to move forward getting stronger, faster, and tougher!
If you haven't picked up those broken pieces in your life and learned to let them transform you into the final form in which you were designed to be, maybe you should try. In time, the broken pieces can be joined together to make something more beautiful!
