On the Potter's Floor

The father molded me,
built me to perfection.
He fired me in a kiln,
and covered me for protection.

I took it all for granted,
threw myself on the ground.
My broken pieces became stepped on,
my heart was never found.

I felt the blood drip slowly,
of the ones that didn't see.
They didn't know what they had done,
how they kept crushing me.

I was left on the potter's ground,
felt so alone.
No one even noticed,
how my tears had flowed.

I felt the potter's hand now,
pick me up from the floor.
He pieced me back together,
made me better than before.
