Broken - Poem by Derrick Clark

Living in a place, that seem so subdued.
Everywhere I look, shattered thing's all around.
People, place, and thing's, life seem, so rude.
Why, I can't put everything, back together again.
Only one person, can make that possible.
The'Higher Power.' Im wondering, all this destruction.
I want my life, to be glue together, with some instruction.
As I praise to the lord, help-me father! On this course.
I don't want to be living in a broken-state.
My mind, body, and soul, need to be save, my lord.
As I look toward the sky, I vision a better place.
