Why do we seek to

fix those that’ll tear us

into a million pieces after

making them whole?

  1. No one ever fixes anyone with out their wish to be …
    Wish to be cured is half the cure. Taking creative responsibility for someone else’s recovery is impossible …. in matters of the mind or heart.

    Could it just be that by fixing others we end up fixing ourselves – even if only a little and sometimes that feeling/message gets lost or twisted and we’ll end up hurting others to heal the parts of us we think are broken?
    Human action and emotion is such a complex thing.

    • Maybe we’re meant to understand ourselves before getting entwined with those that have yet to do so. Otherwise it’ll be a vicious cycle of copying a pasting broken remedies.

  6. I am guessing it is the hope we wish to see for ourselves, because sometimes this poem can be targeted at your internal conversation rather than to someone on the outside. Which actually makes it more heartbreaking than it already is.

    Strong words, I love it.

  7. I think ultimately we are improving ourselves in the process.

    It’s easier to focus on fixing someone else’s problems, because then you don’t have to look yourself in the mirror and say “wtf is my problem” Guilty my whole damn life. Now, I just see my crap piling up from avoiding my own problems. At the same time, there is the feeling of loving someone and wanting them to be happy no matter what. Thank you for the post, I love the provocative way you write.

  10. Very true words. But maybe we attempt to fix them because we forgive? This is a very wonderful poem.
