- What Matters
God, we're so beautifully damaged aren't we?
Believing we're only worth what we're given.
Eating the scraps
of our self-esteem from the soles of their feet.
of happiness after years of being stepped on like vocal doormats.
so clearly written in tears from crying eyes
muttered in the darkest corners of our hearts.
with life and all the empty promises it holds.
like everything else we're so used to.
that prevent a long awaited awakening.
which is far too long in the making.
coming to fruition as we hold ourselves back.
just how beautifully damaged we truly.
