The pain hurts so immensely deep in my heart,
so many I’ve loved have picked up the knife –
Taking stabs at me in this thing called life.
A shield of metal is what I shall now put on,
with each blow, the blade shall bend and make
it more strong.
I no longer will see the bad that has happened
I’ve come to know it’s my choice alone that
controls what I perceive.
Blessings they really are due to what I have
“To put something back together –
It must first come undone.”
