Move Again

The pain had me hostage all year

Felt as though hands tugged at my leg

Pulling at my hip and knee

And even with therapy, my legs still swelled

So I bound them tightly

As they bound me to them

And I hobbled every day, limping

Body teetering side to side

And I felt lame, and lesser

Now I needed to embrace the other

And time to pull at these muscles that clenched

Straighten them out, so I could walk

Life changes when you have something

You took for granted

Be restricted or taken away

And I knew I need to hold my head up

Take one foot before the other

And learn how to move again
