Give It All Away 

I tried so hard, 
when each loss was 
as a shard 
striking against 
my confidence—
cutting me up, 
tearing me apart,
leaving these gashes 
on my heart.
I wanted to be 
so much more—
but doubt was lurking, 
a constant war.
It was then 
I gave it all away—
all of the failure 
fell to decay.
I gave it to God, 
who laid it to rest;
repairing my damage, 
He made me my best.

Gave It All Away
