Rock To A Boulder

There are stories behind

The trail of ashes and broken

Hearts on her living room floor,

She poured her emotions out

Through the pores of her souls core,

She ceased to feel whole,

She ceased to fill holes in her life

That left her heart sore,

If she could, she would rip her

Heart out of her own chest

And let it soar,

Her knight in shining armor no longer

Shined when the nights got colder,

But as she grew older,

She became stronger because she knew

Her path was not over,

There weren’t anymore chips

On her shoulders,

Instead she kept the world on

Her shoulders,

She is a self healing soldier

That evolved from a rock

To a boulder
