Broken Compass

Do not follow your heart when it’s troubled,

or let it lead you when it’s broken.


A broken compass 

will never find 

it’s true north


Take some time to heal 

It may take a month 

It may take a year 

And it may take much more. 


But chances are,

In healing, you’ll learn 

a lot more about the ways of the 

Heart, and the paths already 

carved out for your soul...

Than in chasing the 

Temperamental whims 

Of a broken compass 

Whose only desire 

Is to be tossed aside, 

Never to be used again.

You are made of the stuff of miracles
