Take

 

 

Take
This broken form
And let it slip away
Unseen
Between the sun and the moon

Take
This shattered mind
And let the dust and fragments
Blow out
To the furthest of seas

Take
This hurting heart
And let it
Bleed forever
In the arms of those who know

Take
This caged-in child
And let her
Run in forests in nakedness
And wild fields of play

Take
This burdened past
And purify it
With flames of reddened shame
To white light

Take
This stolen chance
And let me
Hand it back in emptiness
To futures unknown

Take
This woman’s pain
And let her
Throw herself towards your feet
In fear or despair

Take
This woman’s life
And give all the pieces
Up to you
In your sweet name
