We Mend


Broken into pieces

Shattered into dust

A ghost shell of our former

We don’t stand the same today

A thousand years feels like it’s past

We blink and we’ve missed the present

Left to piece ours together

Using pain as our adhesive

Making sure the lessons stick

Ask where the young cheerful child went

Life defeated him many times for trying

His failed attempts have pieced him together stronger

He doesn’t smile because he remembers what he’s lost

He smiles at those who’ve always been there

Not at those who never knew the struggle

With time

We mend

With failures we rebuild

We smile for what we’ve gained

The broken need purpose

With purpose we mend
