Beyond You

When you broke me
I never expected to be fixed
Many felt I was beyond repair
I was tossed upon a heap of lonely souls
Drifting out to sea
Discarded
Forgotten
Silent amidst my hollow dreams
Still I was set free
Free from you
For once able to breath
A hand held out lifted me up
A new world was revealed
Substance
Hope
Friendship
Realization of what life could be
Confidence in a new reality 
Someone could see the value of me
No longer lost
Heading towards hope
Elevated to the stars
Dreams no longer out of reach
I am not broken any more
Your predictions did not come true
I thank God he helped me 
I'm living a life 
far beyond the restraints of you
I listened to those lies spoken in my ear
Felt each word pierce my broken heart
Still some echos remain
But they are drowned by a stronger voice
And so I have learned to believe 
My soul is refreshed and relieved
Part of me wishes that you could see
Sadly I know
You will never see the restored essence of me

    Glad to be able to visit the poems on this "page" of yours again, Richard. I need to be able to come back to some of your surrounding writes. I'm so so glad you've broken free from those lies. You have turned out to be a wonderful man.

    Richard....glad you've been able to overcome. What an amazing...heart rending write. The restored essence of you is simply amazing...and I don't mean the words...I mean the truth behind them! We all have baggage...but we choose to remain victims or not!
