Gathering These Scraps

Gathering These Scraps

gathering these scraps together to build

from a world crumbling and unfulfilled

take to heart these tenets that convey ways

to adapt to that which can not be changed

deep meditation see what patience brings

strumming chords that sing the hearts melodies

freely giving in grand contribution

this breath of life and soul's restitution

take up your wings they are broken no more

you're an angel in full glory adored

born with a globe sized burden like atlas

navigate the unplanned and then map it

bring answers to the change you wish to see

soon you'll live the life you pursue and seek
