Change

Change

written by: Elizabeth Sams

 

tattered and torn
the edges of my soul
flutter in the wind
wildly protesting
the pain within
but I bend into the pain
absorbing, understanding,
discarding what is unimaginable
protecting and moving toward
what is beautiful
toward the lushness of life
toward the velvety softness
of happiness
toward a love that
dries all the tears
and makes me whole.
