Half full or half empty, it doesn’t matter
Lacking within as my soul becomes tattered.
Strength waning slowly, and not for the better,
as there was a time when I was as tough as leather.
Half shatter and battered, bruises invisible,
and no longer do I feel invincible.
So I cruise through my days with a half cocked smile
knowing my inner healing is going to take a while.
