Strong or Broken

By Charlene EllisonPublished 6 years ago 2 min read


Strong or Broken

People look at each other in judgement of another individual life and the way they chose to live

Everyone’s path is not the same yet some frown upon the choices you produce

They speculate on what you should do or not based on their survival or thrive

Is it ok to be imperfect, cheerful, and not look for acceptance only to labeled just petty?

Why? It is ok to be a strong woman and not be conceited but one who is out going

Not afraid to take chances … work just as hard as the next and get a little sweaty

Some women are uplifting of others yet do not see competition but inspiration

Unfortunately, there are those who cross eyes and gossip about others accomplishment or drive

We live in a time that whether you are doing good or bad it happens without causation

Broken is what they say because they do not know the truth and let them wonder

Some people can be so cruel when it comes to the how they feel about themselves

Yet try to make others view seem bad so that they can shine from the words that are spoken

Broken maybe the pieces coming together and strength that they cannot see

Therefore, women are unique, and no one thinks the same yet have different mindset

Just because a person is not your cup of tea… remember you are you and I am me

The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides to the brain and goes straight to the heart – Maya Angelou

We all have experienced life that has changed us, and it should make us stronger and not bitter

If the experience was a failing relationship, job change or even a greater loss

Come together without the negativity or should I say words with no filter

Strong women are individuals you take those words thrown at her and builds a foundation.

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”- Maya Angelou

However, to be a strong woman does not mean to break other women down

How quickly we rise character/ ethics is how far we will go

So, the next time you meet someone greet with a smile and not a frown
