My heart is not broken

My heart lists drunkenly
against furious waves
permanent scars carved into its worn timber
clumsy in stormy winds
but it is not worthless
and I am not broken
I lashed it together with hope and sweat and spit
created a ship of battered beauty
I will never abandon it
Instead I find a way to navigate to true north
And become a master pirate
