Lost And Broken

Met them with no tears,
But I need to see them more,
First time in ten years,
We're all broken to the core,
That makes four of us,
We have to stick together,
That's just it, we must,
We need to make things better,
I love them deeply,
And it's always been that way,
Couldn't see freely,
Just one hundred miles away,
They say the past is in the past,
But the past can not be erased,
That's why I wear this mental cast,
And swallow this metallic taste.

How hard is past? Though how amazing the future can be. Life has been a battlefield as a youth for myself also. Write every thought to repair. You do it well. Let the next phase of your life be strength.
We need to make things better, I love them deeply, And it's always been that way, Couldn't see freely, ......wearing the mental cast...... past remains in us however we may try to erase it. thank u .tony
