Who am I?

November 2, 2010
By Anonymous

The shattered remains of a broken heart
The dust in the wind, or an unneeded part
The sorrow or wonder in a child’s eyes
The hollow feeling after a loved one dies

The beaten and slaughtered from our past
The courage of our future that will last
The twinkle and gleam for a new tomorrow
The happiness remaining behind all our sorrow

The blood flowing through our veins
The one who endures all our hopes and pains
Someone who looks for a brand new day
We are all that person in every way

I write a lot in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. This was actually a really good day, and I couldn't stop thinking about every other thing. I always get ideas on really good days.
