I didn’t understand when I first heard the words. 
I didn’t know that it was so, so much worse. 
They’re talking and talking, but I can’t hear a thing. 
I’m back on the forest floor, hearing nothing but a silent and deafening ring. 
The trees whisper secrets that I’ll never know,
And my guardian angels put on one hell of a show. 

You’ll heal they say, yes, you’ll recover it’s true;
However, there’s a lot that they’ll never tell you. 
You’ll try and you’ll try, but your body’s betrayed you. 
The simplest things are something I can’t do. 
I try and I try to wiggle my toes, 
Realizing deep down these consequences I chose. 
Never again they say about walking;
It pierces my heart and is rather shocking. 
My body is broken; but not my mind. 
It’s an uphill battle just to be kind. 
I’m angry and sad; feeling like I’ve been had.

The loss of my legs opened my eyes,
I feel so empty, and so many tears I have cried. 
You’re lucky they say, you could be dead!
Sometimes I wish that had happened instead. 
I’m here and I’m living; no matter the cost,
But I’ll never forget all that I’ve lost.
