Making Up for Lost

Oh, some pages turned
Some bridges burned
But there were lessons learned
– Carrie Underwood
..

Time. She spent a few too many
years spending it
…………..(energy, tears)
on things that didn’t really
matter.

Beats.
Somewhere, somehow, the
rhythm of her own drum
…………….(hum, thrum)
heart got lost, tossed aside in
all the noise.

Songs.
She forgot to sing, and be, and
breathe, forgot her thoughts
……………….(sought, caught)
counted. That she amounted
to everything.
