Life has a funny way of failing into place
Whether it crashes or transcends from grace
Cracks become sealed
Mended every last shard
Though I cannot promise that it won't leave scars

Confusion never ceases
Mysteries break off into smaller pieces
We accept what we cannot know
In the darkness of acceptance we continue to grow

Stitches and glue,
Purple and blue
Oh, the beautiful lie of red
Beating, carrying on
War has made it strong
An unmarred heart is as good as dead

Life has a thing for violence and hail
Lightning and hurricanes; efforts to make us frail
Headaches become knowledge
Knowledge becomes strength
Yet we still question how much more we can take

Hate rushes in
Passion comes from the most beautiful of sins
Fight for what is seen as wrong
Prove yourself, sing your victory song

Stitches and glue,
Purple and blue
Oh, the beautiful lie of red
Beating, carrying on
War has made it strong
An unmarred heart is as good as dead
So, I finally started to write again. What has it been, four months? Maybe five? Since it's been so long, this probably isn't all that great. But hey, I finally uploaded something other than a journal!

Constructive criticism is welcome.

I love the way you used a language so lush and detailed!

The way you used the term unmarred surprised me,

Not a lot of people know that word.

These lyrics really spoke to me as a beautiful tapestry woven to display the writer/singers story of how she kept strong and tried to keep her heart from breaking. (at least that is how I interpreted it).

A suggestion is to label where the verse ends and where the chorus begins, That would give a clearer image of how the songs supposed to be performed.


Over all I believe this is a wonderful piece of lyrical beauty and I hope to see more in the future!

beautiful poem.
My personal favorite was the fourth paragraph, it feels like there's a certain rhythm to it.
