Poetry Friday: Mine by Phoebe Ryan

Current Song: Mine by Phoebe Ryan

I'm holding on to all the pieces of my heart's debris 'til it's time
I'll pull it together and fix myself eventually and know it's mine

I know that it's mine no matter what I do
I know that it's mine whether I win or lose
And even though my heart needs to take its time
I know that it's mine

- selected lyrics from Mine by Phoebe Ryan

Listen to the song.

I liked listening to the song, too. "It's mine" is truth!

I like the hope in the midst of the heartbreak.

lyrics

I find lyrics and poetry so interestingly similar and dissimilar.

This part resonates with Jama's post this week:

"I'll pull it together and fix myself"

I'm very much the "if you want something done, do it yourself" type.
