Broken, I Used to Be

Updated on June 29, 2017

Picked up my pieces that broke apart once again

Pain and sorrow exposed through sober less ranting

I will go ahead and put them back in my emotional locked cave

I will show a smile, pretend it’s okay and gladly wave


I used to think this was the way to be

Don’t show pain or weakness to thee

Instead hide away until it erupts on the outside

Now apologies I say once again for the hurtful cries


Throw shade in the direction I stand

Wondering who will reach out their hand

To help through my emotional stumble

I want to see who could be a bit humble

I hope for dreams that will take me away

I wish for many more positive days

I want nothing more than to change

My emotional thoughts I rearrange


Looking for a better me I will find

Digging deep within my mind

I know I can be a better me

With the true support from Thee


Or I cry and surrender unto You

Come into my life and through

Your love and support I’ll be

The better me that you always see

Thank you for throwing all the judgements away

Thank you for seeing a different way

To show me how much you really care

For never leaving and always being there


I promise to change because you never gave up on me

You always saw what others did not want to see

You took me into your arms and said

You are my child through life and death
