Damaged Goods

Damaged Goods

Where once I stood with confidence

A broken shell remains

No one has the right to take

What you have taken from me

I am now forever damaged goods.

Where once there stood beauty

Wrinkled skin replaced my youth

My cheeks are stained with tears

No matter how many are shed

The pain remains a flame.

Where once I walked with pride

I slump with the burden of knowing

Who I have become, not what I am

But what you made me

I am now forever damaged goods.

Where once I was inspired

My dreams and hopes grow

In shadows afraid that no one

Will accept them or believe in me

A sense of worthlessness.

Where once I thought I ruled the world

I now can barely rule the day

My body has finally broken

The pain has become my life

I am now forever damaged goods.
