I am an empty shell

Discarded by the beach

Kicked about by the waves

Trampled upon by feet

 

I am an empty shell

Lacking lustre

Misplaced beauty

Buried under sands of time

 

I am an empty shell

Ugly and distorted

Burdened by societal strictures

Cracked deep within

 

I am an empty shell

Chipped and broken

Unpleasing to their eyes

For no fault of mine

 

Kicked Trampled Buried

Burdened Cracked Chipped

I take all they send my way

Returning to be flattened with earth

 

I am an empty shell

But what matters is that “I AM!”
