Some things take time.

Today I want to share with you a poem that I wrote a few weeks ago, it’s about an accident I was in earlier this year. So here goes nothing…


I still get flashbacks to that day;

It’s morning and I’m running late

I send a text to my friend asking her to save my seat as I walk out of my room…

I just got the crosswalk like so I start to cross the street

I look to my left and all I see is the grill of a truck

I feel the impact and it moves through my body, feeling the pain almost instantly

— I remember the impact and then being on the ground, nothing in between —

I just want my mom and dad

— It’s funny how when you’re in pain, no matter the age, that’s who you want —

There is just so much pain

I’m mad, so mad, why would this happen to me?

I hear the sirens getting louder, they’re coming towards me

I’m begging someone to call my mom; I don’t know where my phone is

They gave me medicine so I don’t feel the pain anymore…

They are taking me to my room; the medicine is wearing off now

They move me from one bed to another, suddenly there’s intense pain

I yell so loud and start to cry, it hurts so much

They give me more morphine and I cry into my parents arms, asking why me… why me

My parents calm me down finally by rubbing my back, saying God has a plan

I realize this, there must be a reason this happened to me

My friends start to come in, they’re all so worried

They bring flowers and teddy bears, cards and balloons…

I finally fall asleep after all my friends have left for the night, hoping I don’t have nightmares about the day

It’ll be 3 months this month since this day and I still can’t walk across the crosswalk,

I still hold my breath walking through that intersection on either side at all.

I’m hoping to be able to write more about the accident some time, I just don’t know if I can quite yet. I hope you have the most wonderful day and God bless.
