What is done with broken things,
Unfixable things,
Things that have come unglued?

Where goes the cracked toy,
The split tool,
The doll that’s been puppy-chewed?

Broken and unwanted,
Broken and replaced,
Broken and tossed away

Who mourns their loss?
Who misses their touch?
Who seeks the place where they lay

Tools with missing parts,
Toys with broken hearts,
They crowd the depths of our garbage bins

Who will clean them?
Who will fix them?
Who will bind their mangled wings?

Whose heart seeks out broken things?
Whose heart loves them?
Whose? … tell me … whose?

— Dave Young

Dave Young

A fallen man … a broken man … a man rescued by a ruthless, relentless love.
