"The Puzzle"

Poetry By: CanadianIdiot

Well hey guys, I'm back after a little break. I plan to get back to writing more consistently, since I have two short stores I wanna write now =) Here's a poem I wrote. It's blatant symbolism and isn't terribly great, but it's something, right?

I've been putting together a puzzle my whole life,
And doing so has been a sluggish strife.

The puzzle is a picture of who I want to be,
But every day something breaks apart these pieces of me.

I sometimes let people help me put the puzzle together,
And sometimes they can help make it a little better.

But people always break this puzzle apart,
And they have only forced me to go back to the start.

I forget what pieces go where and why,
Because I can't stay myself no matter how hard I try.
