BREAKING POINT

The prompt for this week’s Saturday Centus is “Sometimes you bend.  Sometimes you break.”  Jenny, if it weren’t for your prompts, I guess I’d never write or post to this blog.  Thanks so much for prompting and encouraging me to write.

BREAKING POINT

 

They request, they demand,

They ask, they command.

And I am confessing,

It can be depressing.

~~~

Sometimes you bend,

Sometimes you break.

~~~

A little bending’s not so bad,

It keeps others from being mad.

But when we bend until we break

In our hearts, we know we’re fake.

~~~

Sometimes you bend.

Sometimes you break.

~~~

It takes energy and time

To glue the pieces to bind.

But it’s the way to feel whole

In a broken body and soul.

~~~

Sometimes you bend.

Sometimes you break.

~~~

Thus we learn, its okay to sometimes bend,

And, though breaking is bad, it isn’t the end.

Laurie.

I have a big lump in my throat from reading this.

This poem expressed so poignantly how I feel.

I like the repetitive verse throughout, too.

It just kept leading me through.

Really well done!
