I Am Broken


Pieces of my soul

found fragmented

on the ground

like a scattered jigsaw puzzle


the pain of my past

stare at me in the mirror

with unblinking eyes


A road well traveled,

whispers in my ear

‘you have nothing to fear’

But, this journey round n

round has started to take its toll

Sure I could put the pieces back together,

a perfect picture, wink

at the man in the mirror, lace up

the shoes and go out the door,

but I’m me, i’m broken,

I am br oken.
