I’m not stronger now as I thought before,

I’m just full of doubt picking up my pieces from the floor.

Broken glass—my heart is now,

And to repair it I don’t know how.

So many things I wish to say,

But I can’t simply find a way.

Shattered glass inside of me,

It stings so badly—you cannot see.

Is this the end?

I ask myself.

Can we amend this living hell?

Fragile now is all I am,

I cannot change it, I understand.

Your heart is silent; there is no noise,

But I hear the winter in your voice.

With you I cannot win; it takes too long,

You say I’m weak, you say I’m wrong.

And as I wait for time to pass,

My heart is simply made of glass.
