Pieces of Peace

Pieces of myself
Are all I seem to own
While everyone around me grows
From pieces I have sown

It's in my nature to be this way
Though I'm puzzled by it still
And to complete the puzzle...I need the pieces
Already given out of goodwill

Some would tell me I try too hard
To be the rock for another
But pieces given...give peace back
When given as unto a brother

    What special creativity pill have you been taking to write all of these awesome poems lately? And where can I get one? Seriously, every single line here is just perfect. I LOVE the last few lines. The play on "piece" and "peace" is so clever. (Also, I'm glad you liked my "Backward" poem! I'm not sure if many people really understood what I was getting at with that one.)

    I can relate, sometimes we lose parts of ourself in our pursuit of this peace. Well done.

    this is FANTASTIC. What a thoughtful and profound little poem, CAleb. Love how you use it in the end as a way to "give peace back" How nice that you are a "rock" for people. Also, the rock is the salt of the earth.
