Lay Out and Let Go

Lay my pain out
Pieces of me
Examine the edges
I have been trying to glue back together
For years
No matter how many times
I line up the edges
They don’t quite fit right
I know I should give up
But, the grudges
Growl in my ear
Chant for me to fight and not quit
Grind the cracks into one, pushing
Every wrongdoing into one
Frustration owns my hands, tears collect in my eyes
Some things aren’t meant to be saved
Toss away with wilted flowers and broken promises
And begin again
Sometimes, you just need to let the pain go
