My Injury Time
I was once injured in a time gone by.
To describe my dread I now shall try.
I broke nine ribs and gravely hurt my arm,
I asked, 'Do I really now deserve this harm?'
Twelve days in hospital I spent,
So slowly by they all surely went.
I lost my freedom and my dignity
And no-one understood my agony.
I was in great and constant pain,
And like this I thought I would remain.
Each single moment I was in Hell.
Could I but get back to being well.
Though now I'm much better I must appreciate,
How much worse could have been my fate.
So while you may think I have raved and ranted,
For your health don't ever take for granted.
