Repairs Needed

So many things need repairing.
So many parts missing or aging.
Some parts worn down my by misuse and abuse,
some never used but still falling apart.
Repair seems futile.
A major overhaul perhaps.
An upgrade?
Now, if only I can find the warranty.




In response to the writing prompt of Every Photo Tells a Story

What needs repairing in your life?
What essential steps are needed to get there?

A very existential poem indeed. We all need repairing, nay, even a major overhaul. We could be so many times better if we will just open our eyes to the realities all around us. As it is, we are mostly blinded by the dazzling lights of crass materialism. Thanks for the exquisite poem. God bless you always.
