B is for Broken

Today is day 2 of the legendary A to Z Challenge!

Hope you enjoy!

B is for Broken

Listen to the rain.
Falling by the bucketful, crashing to the ground.
From far away, someone might wonder what it would feel like to be a drop of rain. They might wonder what it’s like to fall without knowing you’re falling.
But not me.
Because I know what it feels like to hit the ground.

And here's an awesome song by Evanescence that I think fits the mood 'broken':


Have a Beautiful day!

Sometimes it does feel like we are being dashed against the ground. Broken means we can put ourselves back together.

Love the vid-clip.

"Because I know what it feels like to hit the ground"

This line, by itself, is rather pain-filled. Combined with the rest of the words, the emotion multiplies. I enjoyed this. Thank you.
