Bent But Not Broken


Bowed with the weight anguish
Head down…darkness consumes him
As he battles up a hill against the odds
His tears falling… disappearing into the rain
But in the midst of torment…
A glimmer of hope
Although stooped over in pain…
He acknowledges that he is still moving forward
Through his pain, through darkness…
He will not crumble, he will not be broken
Though there is some distance to go
Slowly inch by inch…
His journey will eventually take him through and beyond his sorrow.
