there are three types of people.

 

this is how i think

in broken
sentences

some call it poems
call it whatever you like
but these are
the words i hear
no i see

in my head

all
the
time

I used to think in unbroken sentences like this.

but then
i broke
it happened a few years ago

but i'm not here to tell you why / how i broke
not yet anyway

-

i wanted to talk to you
about the three types of people in this world
each of us / at this moment / belong to one type

the unbroken
the breaking
the broken

everyone starts off the same / unbroken
and most people remain unbroken
from birth to death

in their lifetime
they may get lost / confused / hurt
but they will never break

and then there's the selected few
who starts to / break
and they become / broken

-

there's one more thing
about these three types / each of them
can be broken down / into

the kind
the unkind

those who are unbroken / unkind
petty, spoiled, rude, ungrateful

those who are unbroken / kind
the healers, the counsellors, compassionate, loving, akash

the breaking / just break

those who are broken / unkind
bitter, revenge seeking, arriva bus drivers
(sorry, only people from my uni will get this / hah)

and then there's the broken / kind
you've seen them / heard them
in many places

they learn to express / their pain
in various ways / their way of
healing

some through comedy / dark humour
anna akana / ryan higa

some rap
eminem / j. cole / kendrick lamarphora

some create music / films / art
adib sin & cae / dj okawari / julycreators of goblin
(the most beautiful k-drama i've ever watched / holy shit)

some / like me / write
rupi kaur

-

my favourite / from milk and honey

how is it so easy for you
to be kind to people
he asked
milk and honey dripped
from my lips as i answered
cause people have not
been kind to me

i added

the kindest people
have seen the most suffering
have felt the most pain

you can see it in their eyes
they reflect mine

-

one more thing

the unbroken
will never
understand
the broken
