Fragments

Written by: Cheryl Bousquet

Still is the heart
Fearful in it's beat
True desire does it know
Painful past, first must defeat

Safe does it feel
Others words do approve
How quickly we forget
From complacent removed

Hard fought the battle
Freedoms lessons do cost
Time waits for no one
Once gone, forever lost

In fragments have you lived
Scattered pieces here and there
Never seen, the whole picture
True potential – unaware

Thought have you often
Love enough, there must be
Correct have you been
Clouded vision, can not see

Want does the soul
Reconnection with love
Purpose reignited -
From fear rise above

Found is the strength
Different corner can you turn
In choice can you now
Create all, for which you yearn
