Whole World

The world is wonderful and broken
Both are always true
It is not wonderfully broken
It is wonderful and broken

There is nothing wonderful about war
or disease
There is nothing wonderful about abandonment
and greed
Just broken

But it is also wonderful
Birds, trees, family, love
sunsets, sunrises, oceans,…
the list goes on and on

And if I deny one –
either brokenness or wonder –
I am living only half a life
in half a world
with half a mind
and half a heart
foolish that there is no wrong
or crazy from lack of wonder.
