Better Broken


Sometimes broken means better

sometimes failure means experienced

means strong enough for the storm

brave enough for the waves of tears

weathered enough for the strikes of shame

hardened enough for the echoes of failure

fierce enough for the icy rejection in your eyes


or not

This one I like but I don't love. I think it's the 'or not' at the end. My ending instead is that 'Sometimes is not enough' or something like it. Still good, I like your poetry better than most that I read.
