Trapped inside

Of a body denied

The simple joys of life


Mind is moving

Fast as light

But the body is resistant still


My voice is gone

Communication failed

I feel like an idiot


Feel my age

Older than before

Unable to be a man


Frustration from

Inability

To communicate my needs


Days go by

And nights so slowly

Feel like I’m not who I used to be


Seeing so clearly

What it’s done to you

But not able to show you me


Whenever you cry

I feel pain inside

But I can’t tell you why


Oh let me be

The man I used to be

Before this indignity


I’ve cried a thousand times

Screamed even more

At the plight that has become me


Static on the outside

Covers who I am

Does not show the turmoil here

Far from the promised land


Be my strength

To lift me up

As I escape this fog


Pull apart 

The curtains here

That kept me in the dark


Unable to show

Gratitude or thanks

But time will change my ways


From clumsy oaf

To manageable clod

All with your help


GOD find my voice

When words do not come

When actions betray my pride


My inability to do

Ordinary things

Has knocked me down to size


Pray for me

For I long to be

A man of every day


Not tied down

In a chair pushed round

Or a flimsy hospital gown
