My body is betraying me,
I want to be strong and meet my challenges with broad shoulders and muscled legs,
but everything is standing in my way,
a twisted wrist, a damaged eye, a shredded calf muscle, a torn shoulder blade.
For the love of my sanity let me heal so I can go and hit someone in a grimy gym
because I hope I am kind, but I need the release
I am not violent, but I’m getting there.
