It's like trying over and over again.

To fix something

That can't be fixed.

Like leaves scattering

On an Autumn day.

The leaves will never return

back to the same place.

The more you try to fix something,

It  seems that failure stares

You in the face.

You want to glue it together.

No matter what

It just won't stick.

Do you stop trying?

When do you

Give up?

Something that is broken,

Often times, just  can't be fixed!
