We all come from broken childhoods
neglected, tormented, lonely, discouraged.
We’ve all lived through certain heartbreak
tragic melancholy, hope irreparably shattered
We’ve all suffered through loss and
inundation. Life is too much, often,
Yet this doesn’t make us average,
or even mundane.
Most people find the strength in themselves to
conquer these mountains,
but we summit these experiences
and feel compelled to tell the stories
until the hurt seeps out of us
and we can write
our own new endings.
