a million pieces…

pinteretvThe Young Man came to the Old Man seeking counsel. ‘I broke something, Old Man.’

‘How badly is it broken?’

‘It’s in a million little pieces.’

‘I’m afraid I can’t help you.’

‘Why?’

‘There’s nothing you can do.’

‘Why?’

‘It can’t be fixed.’

‘Why?’

‘It’s broken beyond repair. It’s in a million little pieces.’

Inky: Consequence is an enormous thing.   Regret is immortal.  All it takes is a moment, an action, a mixture of words to make something irreparable.  Be sure, be very sure – that is your intent.

It can’t be unlived, undone, or unspoken.  Ever.
