LB writes the following about her poem titled "Undreakable"
"I actually write songs mostly and it's really cathartic for me to get things out when I'm going through something. When I read them over sometimes they sound so sad or mad or defeated that I want to give myself a hug. but it's just what I'm feeling at that moment and I let myself feel it so that I can try to let it go, or figure it out or at least get it off my chest. Even when I know it doesn't make sense or if I don't really feel that way entirely, sometimes I just need to let myself be emotional and even irrational. I'm kind of hot and cold in the sense that sometimes I'm numb and other times I feel too much.
It's a sad poem, but if it helps someone to relate and feel less alone in their feelings or experience that would be awesome."
If only I could find a way
To bear the cruel things that you say
Your words would be the one to break
Each cutting sound your quick tongue makes
Those scattered pieces that you’d see
Would be your broken words, not me
If I could find the words to speak
Or find a way to be less weak
If I could try to love myself
Enough to not need anyone else
Maybe I wouldn’t be such a fool
To think that you could love me too
To think that you might try to find
Some way to not be so unkind
If I could see myself for me
Instead of what you seem to see
Until I find a love that’s capable
Dear God, just please make me unbreakable
Thank you LB for inspiring us all with your words, and reminding us that we are are so much more alike than we think :)
