I'm broken

Iím Broken

Iím broken, Father
My cloak is torn.
The hem is frayed,
The edges worn.

Where once I was
Dressed in white
Washed in blood
Clothed in your light

I stand naked
Holding pieces together
Iím broken, Lord.
Iím broken forever.

Iíve turned away
From the plough
What can I say?
What do I do now?

Iím broken, Lord.
Am I beyond repair?
Iím crying out
But are you even there?

There are holes
No cloth can patch
Bits and pieces
I canít seem to match

Iím barely hanging
From a string
Canít remember when
Iíve prayed, canít sing

Iím broken, Lord
Iím broken bad
Canít hide my face
Keep feeling sad.

Can you dry
These tears Iíve cried?
Can you forgive
The sins inside?

Am I too far
Your arm canít find
A redeeming feature
In my heart or mind?

Am I as worthless
As I feel inside?
Should I release
The pain I hide?

Iím broken, Lord
Iím filled with fear
Only You can bring
Your healing here

Into your hands
I surrender my soul
Please fix me, Lord
Please make me whole

Iím broken, Lord
Iím broken bad
Please take my hurt
And make me glad

I was touched by your poem. The whole thing was beautiful, but may I disagree with the third verse, "I'm broken forever"? God breaks us only to restore us to a better place than before. It won't be forever. :) In Christ, Lisa
