An Ode to the Broken

 

Misshapen

Mishandled

Misfortune

Forsaken

 

The ones who are played as pawns to the worlds game

The ones used for anothers machinations

The ones on who, all is placed the blame

and the ones left to wallow in isolation

 

And yet

 

They do not falter

nor crumple, nor wilt, nor slip, nor stumble

They do not weep

nor shout, nor holler, nor cry

 

These souls

Stronger than the steel that binds our mighty walls

Stronger than the rocks that form the unshattered Earth

 

Not all that has broken, cannot be fixed

Not all that has fallen, cannot be righted

 

It is by the broken, through which I am given strength

It is by the fallen, through which I am held steadfast

 

Only ones who have been shattered

Can show others how to pick up the pieces.
