Rag Doll


Through the pain I've waded
Overcome with my bitter tears
Shattering with each step I took
Living a half life over the years

Piece by piece I fell apart
Loosing sight of who I was meant to be
I became but a rag doll
The pain slowly killing me

It took a heart shattering moment
A long hard look at myself
To show me the truth
I was an empty shell of myself

I'd lost so much
I didn't know where to begin
But I knew I couldn't go on
Empty but for sorrow deep within

So I retraced my steps
Relived the anguish and tears
Just to pick up the broken pieces
To conquer my fears

Agonizingly slow the progress was
But I managed to collect each piece
I gathered them up unto myself
Desperately seeking to make my sorrow cease

With tears stinging in my eyes
And screams escaping my raw throat
I took a needle and thread
Stitching each piece together, healing in each tortured note

I'm but a rag doll
Tossed as sunder in life's cruelest weather
I'm hanging on by a thread
As I'm bring stitched back together

I like your poem for its good sense of being without being afraid.
