Born To Shatter

Created in the image,
of another,
without a soul,
just a clear glass tile.

Paper thin my size,
You keep looking,
at me through,
your eyes.

Let me correct,
You look through me,
I am expendable,
for I am dependable.

I sacrifice myself to protect,
What lies behind,
Like man who lies,
To protect his ties.

I survive the fall,
But the torment,
Doesn’t end,
Nobody can mend.

For broken is broken,
Shattered is shattered,
Cracks are nice they said,
I wish they were on them laid.

My fate to be broken,
In the clumsy hands,
Wondering about foreign lands,
I count my days now.

I want to break enough,
It is enough,
The clear body of mine,
Lays tattered all time.

I wish to be thrown,
And flown to sewers,
Searching for the,
Promised land.

I will not get reduced,
To sand again,
The burning made me,

The suffering makes me,
Want to return to,
For I want no more pains.

I will have my,
Promised land,
And get reduced to sand,
I’ll wait a million years.

For that is my poor fate,
Like people together,
But still apart,
I will lay in sand,
Until I get my promised land.
