Kintukuroi is the Japanese art of using gold or silver to repair broken pottery. "more beautiful for having been broken" is the righteous allegory for finding peace in this madness. Let me know what you think.


Your love the gold--That fills the cracks in my soul
Your love the gold--Repairs me to whole
Stronger than ever before
Beauty from such... pain
Kintsukuroi, your love…

Most See Me As the BROKEN MAN
But what you see you UNDERSTAND
Now more beautiful For having been broken
There are no words That can be spoken
To tell of the love The purest gold--Beauty from such pain
Kintsukuroi -- your love is my gold

The true life of this soul--Began the day it was broken
Sadness but no anger--Lament but also love
Your love--the gold… that heals--my soul
Your love--the gold… restores me--to whole

Now you love this broken man -- With a heart that understands
There are stories in the scars -- Beauty in the broken places
Beauty in the broken places

Now More Beautiful for Having been broken
