"A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word 'darkness' on the walls of his cell." -C.S. Lewis


You've been given a gift
One that's ripped and marred
Try to see it's unexplainable beauty
Are there too many scars?

It's encompassed by old memories
Captivated by another's smile
Not your's alone
And it's been damaged for a while

Given out in bits and pieces
With empty promises never fulfilled
Please, take whatever is left
Do with it what you will

Caressing it gently
Wanting only to heal
Enthralled by it's mystery
What will it reveal?

Behind broken walls,
lies her dislocated heart
What can come of her gift?
Whats been done with it thus far?

Beaten and bruised,
but it's yours to keep
Just take all of the pieces
She can't handle more defeat

You treat her well
She deserves your respect
A mess to the world
But in your eyes, she's very near perfect
