Healing a Broken Heart
By Anthony Labson
Why do you do this to yourself?
You rather live with heart ache
and never know joy or passion
because you can’t get out of this hole.
You were dragged down
by an iron ball and
got wrapped up in the chains.
You sunk down to this level
and you never left.
You drown yourself in drink
and spend more time in the past.
Your children only know dysfunction
and every day you become a stranger
Well I’m here now
and I want to give you hope.
If you’re so scorned and don’t trust me
then that’s fine but here is my hand.
What do you have to lose?
