My Heart Was A Raisin

A Poem By Gina I. // 10/28/2016

I can't really write songs
My thoughts get stuck
And the words go wrong
They say write from the soul
Let your heart sing it
Well, my heart was a raisin
And someone already ate it

Yes, I'm such a poet
Though they laugh when I say it
My heart was a raisin
And someone already ate it

I’m heartless, it’s true
Needless to say
If I ever get near
Someone shoves me away
I’m hated by many
Disliked by the rest
But I don’t need them
Because I am the best

Yes, I’m such a poet
Though they laugh when I say it
My heart was a raisin
And someone already ate it

It's been gone for a while
Should I replace it?
Twasn't tilll now
That I started to miss it
My heart was a raisin
That much is true
I think that next time
I'll try for two

Yes, I might be a poet
Though I laugh when I think it
My new heart's a craisin
And I'm just gonna fake it

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

Thank you

It stemmed from a (very strange) conversation I had with a couple of my friends recently, and we might be putting it to music at some point in the not too distant future.
