Abandoned, beached upon a distant shore
Once apart of a great and wonderous whole
Now, just a fragmented piece - battered and beaten
Worn smooth by waves and wind

No longer a whole, but a fragment, lost
Twisted, jagged edges exposed in the sand
Essence long ago lost and stripped away
The joys of living a distant memory

Where once the sun brought joy and life
Now it only bleaches a lighter shade of gray
Water that lended strength and beauty
Now is washing all, ever so slowly, away

Till all that is left after time
Is a small grain of what once was
Swirled round and round by the wind
Swept here and there by the sea

This driftwood
My soul
