sudden injury

12 Aug

it could happen at any time

a sudden injury

a mishap

nobody sees it coming

but we all get to pay our share

of pain

concussion lies dormant

until sudden without warning

the whole body rebels

and attempts to shut down

while vital processes try to continue

struggling to remain online

but the pain is great

and the nausea convinces

the most determined skeptic

that rest is needed

and grace

the kind of grace that understands

how frail the body

how frail the mind
