Three months on crutches

I've no hope, just despair

Forced to quit all my jobs

No money, no one to care

 

But I've got to fight on

Live a life of some sort

Not sit here upset

A quitter before I've fought

 

Soon I get a text

'Carnival nxt Sat?'

'Yes please!' I reply

(now I won't get fat!)

 

A few days later

I have a costume to wear

I'm the broken fairy in a dress

That will make people stare!

 

Its silver and gold

And ends just above the floor

With a neckline so low

I can't show much more!

 

 

Carnival day arrives

We've no float – so I walk

Crutches at the ready

People start to talk

 

" She's not going to make it!"

"She looks too weak!"

Inside my head I say:

"You won't say that in a week!"

 

You'll remember a girl

In a pretty gold dress

Who did a mile on her crutches

And had courage, you'll confess

 

That pure determination

To achieve all I could

Gave all like me hope

That someday we'll be good
