A Poem by lei

broken and scarred, the heart is prone to hurting 

dried from tears, the eyes are torn from weeping; 

silence of solitude makes the day doom, 

each echo keep coming back to its gloom. 


ahh! rough was the road, so is my soul 

each turn and twist made my heart whole; 

was lost all alone but found refuge 

in a heart from above who gave me brood!

These twists and turns have me thinking of trials in life. How we try one direction and then are sent on a different one. (that was how I read it)

This is a beautiful piece of poetry..just the thoughtful wording and image of tough trials to overcome ... gazing above for guidence. (that's how it seemed to me) :)

each turn and twist made my heart whole. reminds of a butterflies struggle to get out of a coccoon, which makes the butterfly strong enough to grow and survive.....
and ahhh, the Refuge.
I am not sure what the word brood means though in context anyway, family? kind of an abstract thought, though it is neat.

I really liked the way you phrased the final line. I also like the way that this whole poem comes together at the very end quite well. Was a fun read

Such strength and power in each line of the poem. I like your use of the English language. You use the words to create emotion and desire with no wasted words. I like the complete poem. A excellent poem.
