Modified for better !

On that fateful day something broke,

It was my heart.

Something was crushed inside me,

It was my trust.

And Something changed forever,

It was my attitude towards people.

But did I give up---

No I didn't.

I gathered all the broken pieces,

I tried to breathe new life inside me,

And I tried to believe that goodness still exists,

Made myself believe that you're stronger than you think,

Modified myself to a matured person,

Will not allow to be used or misused,

Will not be taken for granted.

Will love and trust with caution.

Goodness still exists!
Goodness still exists! | Source

      Thank You Anusha, for your kind visit and valuable comments!

      Yes, these are harsh realities of life and most of us do go through such experiences at some point of time. What matters is how we deal with them. Once we decide to move on, it definitely makes us stronger as a person.

      Thanks for the follow and glad to meet you!

      This is not a particularly happy poem, but it's true. Heartbreaks, violations of trust are sad but are still facts of life that can not be avoided. But how we react, and what we choose to become is definitely a choice that shapes our growth as a human.

      Beautiful expressions. Totally relatable.

      Thank you Thelma for reading and appreciating!

      I am sorry that something like this happened to you. But I am really happy that you have moved on and become stronger.

      Many people go through betrayal as I can read the comments. But it's good that they recover and are more mature after facing the unpleasant situations of life.

      Thank You and a very good day to you!

      Thanks MarleneB for your kind comments and appreciation of the poem!

      I haven't heard Taylor Swift's song but would now look for it. Feel honoured by your thoughts about Taylor reading my poem!

      It is very natural to be angry and dark after facing betrayal. But it needs lot of will power to rebuild yourself once again . But that's the right thing to do.

      Glad you liked the theme of this poem. Your feedback is always a pleasure.

      Thanks a lot!

      Your poem is beautiful and quite a good lesson on life - how life happens and we just need to be mature about it and move beyond the hurt. Have you heard Taylor Swift's newest song? It is about how she was hurt and now she has become angry and dark. Taylor could surely learn a good lesson from reading your poem. By the way, that bouquet of flowers is absolutely beautiful!

      Thanks Shyron for stopping by!

      I am sorry that something similar happened to you. But I understand that you have moved on and Happy with your life, since that is the best option for us. Isn't it!

      Many people can relate to the theme of this poem as I can see. But glad to note that they have become wiser, more mature and stronger than earlier. That's the beauty of human nature--adaptability!

      Many thanks for reading and commenting on this poem!

      What a thoughtful observation and comparison between humans and metals! Yes we become stronger and more mature after facing adversaries in life. So strong that nothing can break or bend us.

      A wonderful and enlightening poem. I thought of metallurgy reading it. When you work with metal you anneal it. It is softened first with heat then it is strengthened by cooling it down making it its strongest.

      "Love and trust with caution"....anyone who has had their heart broken or had their trust misused understands this poem.....yes indeed, with caution.

      Thank You Ericdierker for sharing your views with regard to the theme of this poem!

      I agree with you that it's not easy to mend a broken heart . But we have no other alternative but do so-- find other reasons to be happy. Sometimes love and respect comes from such people whom you could least imagine.

      Have a blessed day and thank you so much for stopping by!

      Thank you Peggy Woods for appreciating the hub and I agree with you about the maturing process!

      As I mentioned in earlier responses, it's not me but one of my very close relative who had to undergo traumatic times due to her close relative's deceitful acts.

      Glad to let you know that she is a much maturer person now and is able to deal such people and situations of life.

      Yes goodness does exist and life provides us with other alternatives.

      Appreciate your concern and thank you!

      Thank you Linda for stopping by and appreciating the poem!

      It's not a personal experience but was inspired by someone very close who suffered the pain and deceit by her most trusted one. Sadly betrayal comes from those whom you can suspect the least. I am happy that my very close relative has moved on and happily busy with her life.

      I believe many of us face such difficult situations in life, some would share it , while others prefer to keep it to themselves.

      Appreciate your concern, thank you!

      Thank you John for appreciating the poem and your concern!

      One of my close relative was shattered due to deceitful acts done by her most trusted ones against her. I could feel her pain and in fact helped her to come out and move on.

      I wanted to write the poem in third person but it didn't sound good to me.

      Your feedback matters a lot to me. Thank You!

      I like it. They say that where a bone mended after a break is stronger than before. Don't know, but my heart has never been stronger after a break.

      This poem sounds like it is reflecting a maturing process in action. Hopefully it was not your love and trust that was personally shattered. There is goodness out there!
