“I Bend”

I bend

By Selena Odom

I bend but do not break.
I’ve been lost, but I’m not a loser.
I’m a wreck, but I’m not totalled.
I’m fractured but not broken.
I’ve failed, but I’m not a failure.
I’ve fallen hard but can get up again.
I’m isolated, but still, I’m free.
I have been destroyed but will rebuild.
My heart is broken, but it will mend.
See, no matter how close I come to breaking, I just continue to bend.
