Pain and heavy burdens

Kayla Jackson

A long time ago

I lost who I was and everyone that I loved

that was the price to pay for 

letting demons take a hold of me

I made my choices

and walked through the darkness

believing it shall always be my fee,

but I refuse to believe that any longer

Im paying my debts

and trying to carry the torch

willing my own light

standing up for myself

becoming a little stronger for the fight

to set myself free of the

pain and heavy burdens

that make up all the beautiful,

but broken parts of me

    thanks for sharing
    more power to you!
    fight the good fight!
    beauty is born of fragments
    never delivered whole
    from the outset
    take your time, glue
    each piece back
    till you complete that puzzle
    you seek, to rediscover
    and if some pieces are missing
    so what
    nature's gap-toothed, 'touch'
    yields more lasting beauty
    than all those shining, 'fixed'
