So I recently took this down because I thought it was cliche, but I put it back up because I realized that I didn’t care with this piece. This is my life, what I saw and how things happened. This piece IS a true story.
Nine years old and my life almost ended
Who knew that one second could cause so much pain?
A semi-truck came near our car
And the black ice almost won.
I woke up with my right arm and leg stiff
Solid as a rock
Unable to move.
The muscles were ice
My brain a tornado
A spinal chord injury is a powerful bullet
But it didn’t strike hard enough to kill me.
My limbs can now move
Somehow that’s not enough.
Four and a half years later
I still hear about how I was stronger before.
It’s been four and a half years
And I’m still
Reaching for something. To make me as strong
As I was.
Because I’m still fighting and here to stay.
The black ice didn’t win.
