Am I Broken? – A short poem

Life had so much to offer,

That is what I always thought

many subjects and lessons,

I was ready to be taught.


The world is full of promise

that is very true to say,

but also lots of sadness, 

promises broken on the way.


Now I have learnt this lesson

Life is harder than I thought

But though I may be broken

I’ll keep smiling, though distraught.


Inside I may be crying,

Life may see me slightly low

but will it ever break me?

I can answer, truly NO.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
