I Will Not Be Broken

I woke up happy.

Oh, I had to get up in the dark and go to work,

but my soul was happy and grateful.

Happy because I throughly enjoyed my week away from the daily grind,

and grateful to have my inner peace restored.

I came home and fixed my kids dinner, then headed out for a brisk walk.

My iPod was cranking out some good hits.

Then I heard one that got my heart pumping and soul soaring-

“I Will Not Be Broken” by Bonnie Raitt.

The lyrics strengthened my resolve not to let this work chaos

break my spirit. I won’t let them destroy my inner calm.

I won’t let you near it,

I will let my spirit fly…
