Yet here I stand,
heart in hand,
believing someone

We’re all broken;
those, God chooses
to do great works.
The ones who know
It’s Us, the broken
people; shattered
by the world.
Our voices and
compassion. The
scars that say,
“I know. I’ve been there.”
All the shed
tears, heartbreaks,

Us. We the broken
people. Our lives-
We, who confound
