I Am Unbroken

September 12, 2012

I have cut,
but do not bleed still.
I have stopped eating,
but my disorder was to no avail.
I have hated myself with a deep set passion,
but I am still here.
Completely whole in every fashion.

We all have our journeys and our triumphs
Achievements we place on the mantle
Do not commence to smash them on the ground
when life turns to shambles.

I am still here, unbroken,
unbent, and standing tall
In my mind I doubt not
That again I will fall.
Though not as easily as previously,
nor in such a quick way;
I will stand again, unbroken,
and there I will stay.

I wrote this when I felt I was strong again. It's a feeling like no other. Keep going, and you will feel it too.
