I used to be full of life

Now I am an empty shell

Every day I go through

Feels like a personal hell

No one hears my cries

No one can even tell

That I am broken into pieces

From grace's arms, I have fell

I used to be beautiful

Wild and carefree

Now I am tucked back

Into a shadow no one can see

Beaten to a pulp

Everything has been squeezed out of me

Left to hang like a dishrag

Heaven has discarded me

I used to sing

Songs of everlasting life

Now I hum

A song no one can hear

Teasing the ear drum

But it never goes near

Mother nature

Has left me here

I used to be all these things

Now I am just an emblem of a flame

Against the wall you will truly see

That only a silhouette, matches me
