Pick up these pieces that fall from my body,
Blood drips fast, save me.
No one loves this abandoned person on the street.
Who would ever feel my pain?
Suffering and demons attack my heart,
Pins are sticking to my not sown, ragged, imperfect self.
Why now? Why me? Why can't I be happy?
I choose to be something I'm not, and I'm scared.
Surrender is the last thing on my mind,
But my insides scream for a Savior.
Porcelain fills my veins, don't shatter me.
Not knowing who I am,
Denying all that is good in this wretched world.

The author's comments:
Nothing inspired me to do this piece. Well, my life did. I just was battling with depression and still am. It's a tough thing to do and to cope with. But I hope you liked it, because this poem is representing my heart. The Lord will help me though. I just have to choose to go to Him. *smiles*
