Who Would Want Me....

Updated on March 24, 2017

Who Would Want Me?

Pieces of broken glass

Charred and marred by own mistakes

Who would want me?

Chipped edges, so many scattered

Pieces, cracked beyond repair...

Who would want me?

The time it would take to mend me,

Is beyond anyone's scope of expertise.

Some pieces are invisible

Even to the naked eye...

No way to capture the fragments

And put it back to its original form...

I mean really, who would want me?

Yes, Jesus I have, I should be satisfied

With just that, but truth is I'm not...I want HIM

And him, even still who would want me?

And so I remain in this state of waste,

Unprotected and exposed for all the world to

See...everyone scratching their heads,

Their fingers pointing and asking why?

Who would want me anyways?

Heart over here, eyeballs over there,

Ears buried there, mouth silenced over here...

So many pieces, too many pieces and

too much time it would take to mend me...

So really, who would want me?

Do you? Can you? Will you? Should you?

Could you? Do you even want to?

And so I remain, to be continuously

crushed up, stepped on into many more

zillion jagged pieces.....sssshhh no one knows

Even if I tell, who would listen, I'm shattered into

Pieces already anyways...so

Who would want me?

Oh wait a minute,,,

Am I Job?

      Excellent.

      Shattered mirror has million faces and none at ease,

      I affirm to collect myself back to one single piece.

      When I read this I kept thinking of a beautiful mosaic table that was once a million shattered pieces and although the pieces could never be put back to their original form, they became more beautiful put together in the table, and lots of people want them...Great writing.
