tender.

they said i was
too tender
and sweet a flower
to endure this
broken earth,
they said that
hardships would grow
like weeds and would
drown me, wouldn’t let me
breathe,
and i just smiled,
because i know
a broken world
needs healing and
it needs the strength
found in tender flowers
and sweet hearts.
