Scatter My Light

I’m sorry.
I won’t do it again.
Please, just let me go...
I hate you.
I won’t let you scatter,
Shatter, the light that I have.

I stand in shame,
My eyes are red and weepy...
I can’t find where I’ve fallen off the beaten path.
You tell me that I’m useless.
Careless.
I’m worse than the gum on the ground.
But this is it.
There is no other bottom-line.

You cannot scatter,
You will not scatter,
You shall not shatter,
The light,
The love,
The life,
I have.

You haven’t the right to do me wrong.
You don’t own me,
I’m not who I was.
I’m broken,
I’m beaten,
I’m battered.
But I’m not shattered.
My fragments glitter in my light.
For you can never,
No, never.
Shatter...
Scatter my light.

I love you.
I’m sorry.
I won’t do it again.
Please just let me go.
I hate you,
I won’t let you,
Scatter what little light I have left.
