Weds poetry prompt: ‘Some Assembly Required’


Yesterday’s prompt: Write an ‘assembly’ poem.

Some Assembly Required

All of the little pieces
That make up ourselves
Won’t always arrive
Sorted into the same box.

We were not made whole,
Nor always securely,
Fragments fly off far
Across place and time.

But many will aid us
In finding our finished model,
For they too are building
Life and sense as they go along.

It may not take the shape
We first guessed or expected,
This is the way of a creation
That continually surprises us.

Soul mates stand waiting
To slot in alongside us
Becoming the other half
That we then clutch so tightly.

Those are not the only pieces
In our pursuit of the ideal,
To craft contentment first
Is to become worthy of another.
