Since getting hurtA Poem by slow study
The reaction to a physical injury is not unlike the reaction to an emotional one...
Since getting hurt
I now realize how uneven the ground is
Every step has become tentative
Well-traveled paths are now suspect
A grassy field treacherous
Even walking while holding hands requires me to adjust my gait
My moves are now carefully measured
As I keep my eyes focused on the earth
