“Because you may feel broken but you are beautiful”

Have you ever watched someones life fall apart, shattering into a million pieces. And then despite all the pain and suffering, they picked themselves back up, and took each broken piece and made themselves into a work of art.

I’ve watched many people around me, whom I love dearly, have had their lives fall apart and crack and in that moment I think they felt that there was no way they would ever be the same. And slowly, slowly I’ve watched them rise up out of the ashes, gathering the shards, and put all the jagged pieces back together. And when I look at them I don’t see the sharp edges, I don’t see the scars, I see the beautiful mosaic that they have become. And maybe they can’t ever return to the person they were, but that doesn’t mean the person they are now is not an even more beautiful soul who’s heart is bigger, more humble, more empathetic, more kind, and more understanding.

This song and project has been very emotional and healing for me. And I hope its message can give hope and inspiration to all those who need it. Everyones pain and situation is different, but human suffering whether emotional, physical or mental is universal.

Lyrics
I was there when it was breaking
To see the splinters floating down
I felt the weight of your world fracture
A thousand shards upon the ground
I saw you scramble to collect them
Those bits and pieces of yourself
To try to glue your life together
Put it back up on the shelf.

Somebody you used to be
Who knows if she’s ever coming back
But I wonder when I’m looking at you
If you see what I see
Or only the cracks

Chorus:
Cuz you may feel broken
But you are beautiful
And you may feel weathered
But you are wiser now
Some scars are hidden
But do you know who you are?
Just picking the pieces up
And making you a work of art
Just picking the pieces up 
Just picking the pieces up

To Do your best can feel pathetic
When all the world has front row seats
Hear their thoughts though no one said it
You feel them judging silently

You landed on the path that’s jagged
And others cruise the parts you climb
You took a space of desolation
And painted beauty every time

Somebody you used to be
Who knows if she’s ever coming back
But I wonder when I’m looking at you
If you see what I see
Or only the cracks

Chorus:

Bridge
Somehow your story created
Some kind of mosaic
Fragments of pain
And traces of tears
But the details in it
Nothing short of exquisite
You chose to stare down ruins and wreckage
And leave a master piece right there.

Chorus:
Cuz you may feel broken
But you are beautiful
And you may feel weathered
But you are wiser now
Some scars are hidden
But I hope you know who you are!
Just picking the pieces up
And making you a work of art
Just picking the pieces up 
Just picking the pieces up
