All We're Made Of

By RaheemaFKM

Remnants of dreams nailed together, that’s all we’re made of, you and I
Purposeful insinuations led us to miscalculations, of arbitrary inclinations, and incidental revelations
Bits of truth and hunks of lies are all we’re made of, you and I
Late admission, stale contrition, locked us in a sore condition
Dried up roses, faded rings, piles of dust and wooden things; they’re all we’re made of, you and I
They’re all we’re made of; you should cry
Summer rains and autumn snows, winter floods and withered springs
Contradictions, suppositions, lingering pangs of old addictions
Spirit wounds and tragedies, weighty guilt and miseries
They’re all we’re made of, you and I
That’s all we’re made of; now we cry
