Unbroken

You never said it, you didn’t really ever say anything, but you didn’t think I was worth the effort. And I almost believed you were right.

You thought the shine was gone from me and I wasn’t exciting or new or out of the ordinary. And I almost believed you were right.

You thought everything about me was old news. Ultimately you didn’t think much of me at all. And I almost believed you were right.

You probably thought I was going to break.

And I almost believed you were right.

But you were not right – about any of it.

I am shiny and new.

I am worth it.

I am not broken, never was. I picked up a few dents along the way, but nothing a little elbow grease and TLC couldn’t repair.

It hurt, sure. I had doubts, of course.

But even at the lowest point I knew I wasn’t down for the count.

And it turns out I was right.
