Word of the Day – Smithereens

Smithereens
That’s what’s you left behind
Pieces so small they turned to dust
Even now that I’m together again
I’m still a fragment of myself
A girl with one eye
Half a black heart
Yet, I’m awake
Scarred, but standing tall
Broken, but not over
Not fearless…
Quite scared, actually…
Yet, I’ll take in the sunlight and rain
Eventually, I might bloom again
Someone ready and worthy will pick me
Have eyes only for me
Cherish the beauty you could see
But could not love


Slowly becoming more consistent again. Thanks for hanging around and for the encouragement. Special shout out to you, Ruth! You always miss me. 🤗


I had a rough year and change. Still working my way back to the light. Happy to have my WP family. I’ll get back to reading and commenting soon. Love you guys! 💛
