battered

Empty thoughts of a better life

Dreaming of all that was

And that could have happened

Ripped away with a cold hand

No care or concern just take

How do I move on from the only thing I knew

Where do I land

What does this future hold

Is fate laughing at me

Can the cards be re-dealt

Or am I stuck with this hand

These odds and ends that amount to nothing

Can anything good come out of this

Broken pieces made stronger

Scars from the battle will mend

Shattered heart still pumps

Blood still flows

I will swim against the current

Strength will return

Stronger than before

Muscles will ache

Bones will be whole again

The destination will be worth journey

Scars will be my story

Healing will be His glory
