I am Broken!

I’m broken:

but my wings are not clipped

I’m a witness to my humanity

and I own it

I can’t run like the old days

but that doesn’t mean I can’t jog

I finally feel human

the continuous struggle adjacent to the habitual strive

I get it! I’m human

and I own it

my soul has been broken

my voice has been stolen

my tears flow continuously

my eye bear witness to my humanity

I speak with a pen

until the day my voice is needed

with every step, I enter into a battle

equipped to with the spirit of a fighter

I am fighting a human race

I often wake up to yesterday

from a dream about tomorrow

I feel and know

my brokenness

Broken enough to survive

Broken enough to pray

Broken enough to smile

Broken enough to strive for healing

To be planted in the dirt

To be watered as I am the seed

and like dust, the poet said “I rise”

To challenge history and gain authority

to know that the only way up, is down

the only way to come on top is to own one’s own brokenness

Young Man, Young Woman

no true soul conquers their journey from the top

that soul goes low

and then it is high.

A Burden (we) carry

To the soul on this journey: take courage

To the soul alone: take hope

To the soul in battle: tread easily

Run this race not as one, but with one

There is a burden to know your calling

whether it’s to be a Christian or Atheist there is a burden we are all carrying

to convince the unbeliever

to cry with the broken

sit with the poor

have patience, have integrity

teach through self-discovery and disobedience and intolerance

wait patiently for the triumph

wait for the blind to see so that maybe one will put down that drink

wait for the deaf to hear so just maybe one will put down that needle

wait for theĀ  lame to raise so they’ll believe again

and wait for the dumb to speak so they’ll be able to witness and clothe another

a burden we carry, a burden I carry, a burden you carry

imprinted on our hearts

to be marked with optimism

clothed in humility

standing through doubt

commit to perseverance, faith, kindness, meekness, the unforeseen, the evil, through the devil’s trials and many errors.

when we love

when we care

when we see the top of the mountain

We realize it’s a glorious burden to carry

given to the swift

pure in heart

strong and overcomers

Thank you, Jesus, for the burden I carry
