Broken Too

Broken Too

A Poem by ReedWrite
"

Just some random thoughts today :)

"



You’re hurting…and I want to ease the pain.

                I do!

But I’m not sure how to do that…

                Because I’m hurting too.

 

You’re crying…and I want to dry your tears.

                I do!

But I’m not sure where to begin…

Because I’m crying too.

 

You’re lost…and I want to show you the way home.

                I do!

But I can’t seem to find the road…

                Because I’m lost too.

 

You’re broken…and I want to mend the pieces.

                I do!

But I don’t have enough duct tape…

                Because I’m Broken Too.

This reminds me of broken families. A parent's poem to their child. Like something I wish my mom had the strength to say when I was little and she couldn't comfort me because she was having such a hard time herself. But she didn't have the words then. At least they're here now for me

TY Roxane...so glad you enjoyed it.
A very lovely write.

Your repetition of lines works very well throughout and induces true emotions in the reader.

Love and loss are universal emotions and familiar to millions. And sometimes we just find ourselves unable to help others because we are struggling to help ourselves.

A very delicate poem with a lovely smooth flow of thoughts and words.

I really loved this because I have lived it and lost it before I could fix it.

Your words were soft yet powerful. Thank you.

Thank you.
Together - ease the pain and right the hurt.
Together - dry each others' tears and smile -
Together - each lead the way -
Together - bind up your wounds.
Together - banish the loneliness best by being together.

This is beautiful. And truth filled. You're an inspiration. Great read.

The desire to help, but also catering to ones own burdens is a universal message we all can relate to. Awesome job. And heart-felt/wrenching.

Thank you very much Liquified. Appreciate you taking time to read and comment.
Both facing the same things; the struggles, doubts, lost selves. Both need love, guidance and healing. A very powerful write. Repetition gives it an added impact...:::))))
