It started out from a fall, a simple fall, not far, but oh so painful
The elbow was shot, which got it replaced, but that itself was not helpful
The awkwardness was evident, as I fell once more, it was becoming shameful
They said it was okay, that I should be glad, but I’m not, it’s just so awful
Second fall and another elbow gone, its really becoming stressful
Guess I should be grateful, the body still works, still trying to be faithful
But I fell again, loosing both knees, becoming harder now to be careful
Then came the slide that took out my hide, now I don’t seem useful
But came a crack appeared that took out my back, replaced with a pipe, now ungraceful
Now my head shines so bright, gives others a fright, not a most practical skull
But I sit here and rest, have done very my best, and finally I am becoming peaceful.

And in closing I always remind my readers the value of kindness. Everyone has a back story that needs kindness and understand to get through the day, so always be kind.
