Litter

Litter
I’m a lost cause
a piece of discarded shrapnel
strewn across a dump
shattered into
undistinguishable
and gnarled pieces.
As the wind gives
its tiny bursts and whisperings,
I lift seamlessly into the air,
Hover for a moment…
just long enough to find
another place to lay my head.
The horizon shimmers
as the sun shows his face
to a new day.
The air, crisp in its freshness,
wraps its long arms
around my scattered pieces,
subtly beckoning
them back together.
Im a lost cause,
there is chaos around.
The ground under
gnaws incessantly
at my sides.
My nakedness
cold, still, lifeless.
Inanimate objects,
We lie around,
trying to camouflage
into the colourful
heaps around us.
We are all the same
yet so very different.
Each with his own story
Each his own past.

Beautifully written.

You are precious Tye. Even when scattered to the wind and without a place to rest you are more precious than the largest mansion, the most beautiful future, a river of gold. Every single piece of you.

They are rubbish Tye not you!

Only rubbish, petty, foul people would do this to another human being. They are miserable people.

I am so sorry you are going through this. But again so awed at your strength.

I hope you can get some rest today.

Love,
Eh

Tye,
You are precious, not trash.
It is a powerful thing to make beauty out of pain.
