Broken Piece of the World


I’m shattered

I’m a broken piece of the world

Trying to climb out of the pit of despair

Yet I still dream

Of a better tomorrow

I’m worried

I’m puzzled about the future

Trying to march forward

Yet I still don’t know what to expect

I’m drained

I’m filled with utter madness

Trying to dig the mine that is my heart

Yet there is nothing to find

I’m disappointed

I’m left on my own

Trying to defend for myself

Yet I was never taught to stand my own ground

I’m a broken piece of the world

I’m shattered
