Trauma’s Unceasing Harvest

Have you heard anything
Regarding injury to the brain?
For in your heart,
You’d think it’s such a shame.

Lets take Jimmy here,
He’s a friend of mine,
Walking to school one day,
Everything was just fine,

Ready to cross the street,
Two cars hit with a crash,
One car rebounded,
And laid Jimmy in the grass.

Sent him right into dreamland,
Twenty days in a coma, or more –
And now he’s battling with himself,
Just to do every day chores.

He sees a therapist regularly,
The way he handles,
I don’t know how,
But let’s ask Jimmy
How he’s doing now.

“It was hard for me at first,
Everything seemed so strange,
Yet my teacher tells me,
That nothing’s changed!

The girl that I used to like,
We’d meet out on the track,
When our classes were free,
Now she won’t even look at me!
To tell you the truth,
I don’t know
If I want to be here in school,
They all look at me
Like I’m such a fool.”

Well thank you Jimmy,
For speaking your mind,
Just know that out there,
Are people that care,
Them, I’m sure that you will find.

Being dragged through the wringer,
Jimmy starts his wrinkled life anew,
And as much as you may have heard,
Do you really know what Jimmy’s going through?

The Unpaved Road

The Unpaved Road It’s been quite some time, I’ve been traveling on this route, No one ever told me, What it was all about. I’m affected on the inside, Morning, noon and night. My friends and family, Say it will be all right. But what do they know? They’ve never been down this road. All they see Are the symptoms I’ve showed. Oh Lord, Help […]

“Disabled” I must analyze The definition of this word, For the underlying meaning Is somewhat absurd. Disabled? Do you mean UN-abled? No, not me, To that I say “Hey!” I’ll get through that obstacle, My own little way, Please understand, I don’t think that I’m so great, I’ve just learned to compensate. Are you diss-ing me, Just because I have trouble With my memory? We’re […]
