A snow globe cracks.
Its pretty when it was together
But when it shatters, it’s over.
Don’t try to recollect the water, the snow, the snowman.
Because you’ll only injure yourself on the glass.

Glue can put it together.
But it will never be as pretty as before.
It’s best just to clean up after yourself
and discard the pieces.

The author's comments:
A lot of great writers wrote great pieces of literature when they were depressed.
I wrote this after a breakup, and it just reflects my feelings.
