Jagged Edges








                                            I had once walk this earth naked and broken
                                           With my eyes I could not see
                                           Finding a vein in my heart with the pulse of life
                                           I no longer walk in the way of deceit
                                           I was drifted to the jagged edges of my world
                                           and the earth taking from under my feet
                                           Arrows of truth killed my sorrow
                                           Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is to come, and
                                           today I'm at peace.

    I am digging this write a lot because it speaks of life and its trouble, and how we can move on and not live with our pass failures. You have a wonderful job.

    Happy to read you have found your way. Life is full of turmoil and sometimes we are led astray before we find our truth. Well done. Love, Shar
