I Am Not Broken, I Am Free

I Am Not Broken, I Am Free

(Taken from the Movie Pariah by Dee Rees)


Heartbreak opens onto the sunrise
For even breaking is opening
And I am broken
I’m open
Broken to the new light without pushing in
Open to the possibilities within, pushing out
See the love shine in through my cracks?
See the light shine out through me?
I  am broken
I am open
I am broken open
See the love light shining through me
Shining through my cracks
Through the gaps
My spirit takes journey
My spirit takes flight
Could not have risen otherwise
And I am not running
I’m choosing
Running is not a choice from the breaking
Breaking is freeing
Broken is freedom
I am not broken
I’m free.


~ Spoken by Alike (Adepero Oduye)

Glad you enjoyed it! The movie is great as well. It really offers a different perspective on being "broken"....
