Thoughts on the engineering

We rupture,
breaking hearts and
bleeding vessels, but
we mend somehow and
carry on to break again,
bleed again and lead again
into another break.

There’s lots of reasons why
we don’t give up and die
and
all of them because
we’re not just men
emotional
unstable or dysfunctional,
but because
we all have hope.
