I am a bird--
With a clipped wing.
I am unable to soar.

Only with great effort,
Can I move about.
I cannot reach the stars.

I am a fish--
With only one fin.
I am not swift.

Only with all my might,
Can I move through water.
I cannot go where I long to be.

I am an animal--
With a too-tender heart.
I am not able heal.

Only with great strength,
Am I able to smile.
Soon my smile’s a frown.

Others can clearly understand
That I have been
Clipped, cut, and beaten.

But they cannot know
How it feels
To be truly broken.

  • My friend R in Atlanta always says "I'm broken".

    Sure enough she had brain tumor and had 8 hr op but all turned out okay.
