I Tried Sleeping with a Broken Heart
I once heard a song by an Artist name Alicia Keys,
The song was about sleeping with a broken heart.
Well, Ive tried that once or maybe even twice,
or maybe even three times, but it just wouldn't work.
Try sleeping with a broken heart?
I had to wake up and ask myself
Why would I want to do that?
When Jesus tells us that weeping may endure for a night,
But Joy comes in the morning!
Joy comes in the morning, wow!
So why can't joy come at night?
Why should I be struggling about how to make things right?
Why should I continue to put up a fight?
The fight is over, nobody won.
I was never in it for the fight, I just wanted to do whats right,
But instead I got my heart broken,
Torn into pieces.
It kind of reminded of that song by Ledisi "Pieces of Me",
Because I sometimes hold so much in.
Sometimes I feel like I have to pretend
Like Im happy when really I'm miserable within.
So anyway, I tried sleeping with a broken heart,
But I got tired of it because I am what.
And since I am still living,
There is no way that my inner self is not healing.
So my heart is not broken,
It's just merely on the road to recovery,
or maybe on the road to redemption.
Either way it goes I am soaring,
With the love that God has showed me,
Time is of the essence so why must I focus on things
That would cause me to worry?
When worrying cuts off time from my life,
All because I was trying to do what's right.
When what's right was probably wrong
and God knew what He was doing all along.
So I thank God that I am made whole
and I able to write this poem.
