Second Chance

Second Chance

A Poem by Colby
"

In Aug 2010 I was in a motorcycle accident that nearly killed me and shattered both legs. It was the most physically and mentally draining experience of my life. This was written 2 months afterword.

"

He just wants to scream. The pain so real. Day in and day out. Yelling at the walls of his bedroom, now a prison. Punching his pillow in anger. Another sleepless night. Tears fall freely from his once steady eyes. Drained from the hurt and frustration. He feels so alone. The pity in his friends eyes only distance him more. He craves the rain. To walk out in the night with outstretched arms and feel the heavens fall around him. To remember what it feels like to be free. Every day he fights again to the limits of what he thought he could take. They say it will make him stronger. Then why does he feel so weak? Looking back at his life he ponders. What was he? Before. Before He was given this second chance. Before he came within inches of death. Nothing. He was nothing before. Nothing to be remembered. What will he be now? First he must beat the pain and exhaustion. He must walk back into the sun. He has to embrace this second chance.

He has to be something this time…..

Okay it worked this time....so I'll repeat... I loved the raw and beautiful words you wrote...how openly and honestly you shared your struggles and reflections. I am so proud of the man that you are...the character this trial has shown you to have. These things change us, yes, but they also magnify who we already are. You ARE strong and positive and full of heart and wisdom and I love the man that you are! Also just a thought I'm having...not everyone understands this kind of delving into our own pain through words as a means of finding release. I think it is the best kind of therapy.

It's good to see you writing again. You should do it more often as it's probably one of the most powerful outlets you'll have for getting through the pain. Remember.. Life is what YOU make it.. no one else, just you.. and you can have a fresh start at any given moment. Keep up the great work :)
