not broken.

such a nasty word for what you are
you are not broken. 
I tell the reflection in the empty water cup
you are whole. 
and they just don't see that
because if you were broken 
you wouldn't be able to love at all. 
so don't let them break you. 
don't let them make you hurt
because you want to feel good.
open your mouth
and tell them
tell them just how whole you are.
sing it out in a wordless tune
write it down untill your brain is numb 
dance until your ankles feel as though they will break
beneath your weight
and show them
that just because your different
doesn't mean you aren't human. 
are not
as long as you don't let your self be.
