'Broken Pieces' - Poem by Bernard Snyder

Sometimes we sort through the shattered pieces
with hopes of finding something still intact,
despite the excruciating pain we went through,
we always find ourselves looking back,
too often we allow our hearts to lead us
hoping for a second chance
putting our entire lives on 'hold'
when we should be trying to advance,
we get so 'caught up' thinking of the good times
that we forget how the bad times left us hurt and speechless
losing sight that all we have left
is memories and 'broken pieces.

    Amen! Amen! Amen! .Your words find me, as I sit staring back at love's yesterday....Can't seem to shake the sadness. Then I stumble onto the words you offer. Eye opening inspiration to leave forward. You have provided a push, or so needed. Wonderful wisdom. PEACE (Report) Reply

    Among the shattered pieces, there may still be something in tact! In pain and misery also there is hope! Though the present may not be so happy, sometimes memories of the bygone incidents can give us a lot of joy and drown our present vexations! Enjoyed the poem that ends on a note of positivity! Thank you Bernard for this write! (Report) Reply

    Yes sometimes we get so caught up in thinking of the good times but we forget there is a whole life ahead of us. Keep up the good work Ben (Report) Reply

    I feel the same way. Broken pieces mold and make you just like the perfect pieces do. (Report) Reply

    Shattered and scattered, the broken pieces of our lives long to be whole. Well worded work my friend! 10/10 (Report) Reply
