My favorite peom is Undone , by FFH
It has alot of power in each word and verse

UNDONE

Open up wide
Swallow down deep
No spoon full of sugar
Could make it sweet
The cancer inside
Is stealing my sleep
Night after night
It keeps haunting me

The secrets I keep
Are tearing me up inside
I try to hide
And then I wonder why
I wonder why I'm still running
When I know there is no escaping

Come undone
Surrender is stronger
I don't need to be the hero tonight
We all want love
We all want honor
Nobody
Wants to pay the asking price

I fall on my knees
Fall on my pride
I'm tripping over
All the times I've lied
I'm asking please
But I can see in your eyes
You don't need tears for alibis

It's true what they say
Love must be blind
It's why you're still standing
By this sinners side
You're still by my side
When all the things
I've done have left you bleeding

Come undone
Surrender is stronger
I don't have to be the hero tonight
We all want love
We all want honor
Nobody
Wants to pay the asking price

I don't think I can drive it home
Tonight
I don't think I wanna be alone
Tonight

  • The image you see
    In the mirror before you
    Is the reflection
    Of what has been
    And is yet
    to come
