Bad Repairs

You can’t fix a broken person

 

You can glue them

But the cracks are still there

  

You can give them a fresh coat of paint

But the original coat still lies underneath

 

You can help them build new walls

But the original foundation is still there

 

You can’t fix a broken person

You can only hide their pain
