Broken

Broken
People shy away from
Bruised and battered things
People think it’s hopeless
When they spot a crooked wing

Broken
Is this truly horrible?
Does it mean the end?
If I claim this label,
Is it possible to mend?

Broken
This is not a synonym
For ruined or beyond repair.
It just states an entry point
We all must start somewhere

Broken
I have no qualms or quibbles
With this fact of life
It describes where I am at
It causes me no strife

I. am. broken
But I am not defeated
Don’t confuse the two
I will not be mistreated
