If I must

If I must be crushed,

then let me be a rose,

 be the beauty in the broken,

the pain inside the prose.

If I must be elastic,

let my heart expand.

Let me love in spite of

what I do not understand.

If I must know heartache,

then let me be a light,

so that someone else can know,

they are strong enough to fight.

Please let there be a purpose

for the pain I chose to bear.

Let me not be bitter

because it feels unfair.

Accept with grace

the things I can not know

Never stunt my spirit,

just because it hurts to grow.

Let me be loving

Let me be warm.

Let me be grateful

in spite of the storm.
