Bent, Not Broken

Some time ago, Brandon E. experienced a low point in his life and wrote an angst poem about it that I find quite interesting for its spirit of defiance. The poem is called "Bent, Not Broken":

not succumbing
but not overcoming
barely getting by

smiles in the hallway
jokes on the fairway
at home a broken sigh

belief in life better
with no clue how to get there
slowly running dry

a bent neck, not broken
many dreams, unspoken
how did he become I?

Thank you, Brandon, for allowing me to post the poem!
