i am broken...
but i will stand
i am bruised ...
but i will heal
my heart lies in one million pieces on the ground...
only god can sort it out
and put it back the way it should be
i have tragedy upon tragedy...
but i will fight
and i will stand
and i will not give in and give up
there is a brighter day, a better day
coming my way...

What a beautiful and inspiring poem. Thank you for visiting-So it is from Aesop's Fables. I printed it out and we read it for a home-school lesson-everyone loved it. Do you home-school or are you just into ancient history? Blessings, Rose

Rose: Thank you for your comment on my poem. I have home schooled all 3 of my children at one point in time. I am so happy you and the family loved it. That makes me so happy. I do love ancient history as well. It is one of my passions. Have you ever watched the History Chanel on Monday nights? They have a guy on there who explores ancient underground cities. It is so neat! Morgan Spurlock, I think that is his name. Have a wonderful day. xoxo Nita
