Broken screen

They
Expect me
To save them

They see me
As a rock

But I am nothing
But paper

And I fly, as the winds
Blow

I cannot hold up
The world

My intentions are
Long surpassed

I am not strong
Enough

Not brave
Enough

Not good
Enough

And so, if I am
Your refuge

If I am
Your strength

Seek shelter
Elsewhere

Because I'm as useful
As a broken screen

uhh.... i hope this was just your creative genius speaking.... because you are way more useful than a broken screen and you are more than good enough for anything and i know what you've been through... and i know for a fact you are strong. so dont ever truely think that you are less than what you really are.
