A Million scattered pieces


A Million scattered pieces
Are all coming back together
Slowly but surely

Foggy face in the mirror
Is finally getting clearer
Slowly but surely

A sweet little soul
Lost his entire childhood
Sleeping under
A dirty blanket of fear
Helpless and alone,
Voiceless little heart
Quietly cried
Tears that flowed for decades
Are finally drying out
Slowly but surely

Eyes that were wide shut for decades
Are finally opening up
Slowly but surely

Always hiding my face
From myself
I lived on this life
Poison that he cooked
I drank it all
Hiding behind the purity
Of God made relationship
He committed uncounted crimes

Lock that closed my mouth shut
Is finally opening up
Slowly but surely

None of it
Was ever my fault
I am finally finding that out
Slowly but surely

Million scatered pieces
Are finally comming back togather
Slowly but surely

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
