Read Poem: Breaking, by Marika MacLean

If it’s any comfort to you
The sun and the moon will continue to fill the sky,
Day and night

If it brings you peace
Your despair will not cease the incessant flow of all rivers and streams,
bodies of water,
vessels that bring life

If you can find solace in knowing
The rhythm and movement of the forests and oceans
never stop their cycles

No matter how many times you’ve given up
Erosion’s natural force will occur
Causing destruction
And nature will fight back

For every tear you shed
Every tight string you hold to
Can be broken by a summer storm
