Born Broken


How to build a better man?
Can you build it out of brick?
Can you build it out of sand?
If it's wet will it stick?

Do you need to wipe it first?
Delete the entire drive?
If you don't, does it get worse?
A clean slate means I'll survive?

What method do I dare use?
Do I copy from a book?
Step into another's shoes?
Do I steal from whence I look?

How to build a better man?
Can I heal this lifeless heart?
How will I know if I can?
I guess I'll know once I start.
