Oh curse this heart of a thousand stones
And find a home to grow alone
A heart of more than flesh and bones
And things I can’t imagine.
For every smile upon my face
Is laced with bitterness and hate
Of things I cannot change,
And things I cannot fathom.
I was a pawn in the hands of fate,
Picked and placed without a way
To break the chains of my skin.
Now I sit again stagnating
With pen and hand and heart still shaking
Upon the path my soul is taking
Or being taken from.
Yet I will find a way to grow
More hope along this narrow road,
Load my heart with brighter tones
And throw away the stones.
