There are fragments of myself on the floor today. 

Little pieces of me are being stripped away. 

Life is not always an easy scene.

The innocence inside of me often falls to her knees.


I see that I have a choice today.

The fragmented parts are not all mine to claim.

Some I cherish and want to stay.

Others are foreign and I can’t understand what they say.


I see that I have a choice today.

With those pieces I love and want to stay.

They can be mine forever,

For I now know that I always have the final say.


I know that I have a choice today.

I can let go of the fragments that lead me astray.

I can pick up the pieces that are mine to stay.

I can build the me that I want today.
