Heartbroken but Okay

I am…

I am young and strong,

I am hurt and lost.

I am free and I am chained down.

I’m not alone but I am lonely.

My heart has been put through test after test

And I just don’t know if I can ever rest.

My tears flow over rosy cheeks

I cannot wait for one of life’s peaks.

I don’t know what to do anymore.

I have been hurt time after time by the one I adore.

I am…

I am happy it happened,

I am sad that it ended.

I can now rely solely on my friends

I don’t have to worry about the next ones end.

I have to except that you’re free to roam,

I have to except that you’re no longer my home.

I am…

I am free though heartbroken,

I am still outspoken.

However, there is one thing I can say,

I am…

Going to be okay.
