So much has been taken I’m not sure what’s left.
I wish I had realised what I’d had before I gave more up
To a thief in my bed.
How bright I was, how human to the touch.
So much life coursing through these veins,
so much to give, so much potential to lead life with.
But you don’t come out of battle as you go in.
I thought change was supposed to be a gift?
I was so careless, how careless.
Shell of the person I used to be? Or just grey?
Maybe it was my youth,
But I’m still too young to be this old,
Too soft to be this hard.
It’s true, I’m scarred,
But amongst all this loss, there’s more.
Something deeper there.
So although I’ve given up skyscrapers for country skies,
And hands for hugs,
Many for one,
I know peace.
I’ll know more peace than I’ve ever known,
I’ll be able to feel whole,
