Running on broken feet

That feeling you get

after surfing through pain.

Remembering all smiles

forced to feign.


Weaving through tapestries

sewn on tears.

Soaking the threads

till melting dares.


The eyes of those

who have battled wars.

They are no longer viewers

But open pores.


Peering through blood,

squinting to see.

Because what was will

build what will be.


Holding on to the

lessons taught.

From all that endured

and all turned to naught.


From every memory

a moral is said

with the pride of one

who held his head.


For every moment

can write a sheet

of the beauty of running

on broken feet.
