Broken and Mended Lives

Soft, innocence and new.

We all reap what we sow.

Train and learn, we grew,

Our parents hearts in tow.


Joining institutions

Kind of innocent, headstrong

Three graduations,

One in the throng.


Formal junkies and limos,

Gassed and laughes,

Demos and gizmos.

Intimacy, marrys and loves.


Parents gone to serve

Upon their return,

Relying upon reserve.

Years to mourn.


No where to be found

Games with affluent

Dueling the dumbfound.

Meaningless agrandisement.


Lives lost or ruined,

Games of law;lawless.

Beautiful clothes sequined.

Patience is ceaseless.


Knowing eternity is

Existence mercy unearned.

Just like atlantis

Eternity  gifted are amazed.

    Sharon, each of these stanzas is a meditation in its own right. Thought-provoking.

    we reap what we sow…and…Knowing eternity is
    Existence mercy unearned…..are the parts that stick out for me and hold it all together…the breaking and being restored…happens again and again… and i’m beyond thankful that there’s healing and hope as long as we live..

    An all of life is here!

    You have summed it all up here perfectly. It is what it is and we either let it break us, or makes us. Either way, we never stop learning its lessons.

    I love the three-word last stanza which says so much so succinctly!

    A personal story — I have to guess for much of it.

    You do a terrific job with your rhyme scheme, and I like the gear switch at the end.

    Knowing eternity is existence mercy unearned.
    How true 🙂
