The day


Long ago...I had it all set before me, or so I thought.

Truth is, I can barely remember how it was back then.

In an instant it was--gone, just like that.

I had to change my plans and my outlook,

though I certainly didn't want to.


My new world came in the form of a hospital room.

I had no memory of the accident, and still don't to this very day,

which is probably a good thing, but to lose a moment

of my life, such a momentous, life-changing one,

still seems like a loss, somehow, if that makes any sense?


I've tried making chicken salad out of chicken shit,

it's still just chicken shit, isn't it?

Thank you, and that's the only way I know how to write. I'm not smart or clever enough to be anything else--lol!
