Will You Ever Be The Same? ?

Life stripps you off
Catches you off guard
Exposes you to you
Forces you to bow ur head
And rips your heart into tiny shredds
Each piece resembles
Strength
Hope
And endurance

Life wants you there
It feels right by virtue of placing you in a corner so tight
You gotta squeeze the last dropplets and make the most of it

It prepares you
Sharpens you
Shapes you up
Only to panelbeat you
For more shapes

Will you ever be the same?

Would you look back at the now and say Give it your best shot
That was below the belt

Will you ever step back to fimiliar territory
Or re-create yet another motion picture

Will you ever forget
How you were made to feel
Was it bad compared to the past ventures

Or are you so fragile any blow moves you
better yet could it be numbness finally moving right along

Life
you got to love it!
