"Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise." This is a beautiful sentiment. Being broken and rebuilt is part of the human experience. Scars of traumas both old and new worn proudly are something to be celebrated, not ashamed of.


One day I hope to find the courage to grow up just a little
one day I hope to find us loving, hopeful and
breathing out, just a little

One day, smiling through clenched teeth
I hope to figure out what our love really means
because I tried to breathe you into me
with the hopes that you could fix my little

Little broken pieces
little broken pieces
find little whole pieces
find a little gold to put between them

Oh from all I’ve ever known
what is broken must be thrown
still if it were up to you and me
we’d be with the little fishies
swimming in the sea

Oh you will find these pieces
find a little gold to put between them

Little broken
little broken pieces
