Poem - "Should I break"

Should I break,
It won't be like a table leg
Snapped off at the conjunction,
Easily fixed with hammer and nail.
No, should I break,
Some miniscule part of me will be lost
That will make repair impossible.
I'll break like a ceramic mug
Thrown against a wall -
My heart will be part of the dust
That can't be collected
Because the wind's already taken it away.
