I Chuckle as I’m laying in bed with two shattered ankles reflecting on old poems and a mindset that got me into this broken situation. As I contemplate why this happened to me, why I deserved this, I realize that I may never find the answer, or that the answer is simple; I was being dumb and made a reckless impulsive choice. Why is not the question of importance. What really matters is how am I going to overcome this injury and grow from it. Maybe it was some past life karma I had to live through, or maybe it was just simply a stupid decision. Regardless of why, I am going to heal both physically, mentally, and spiritually, and grow into a stronger, wiser, and more compassionate human being. The following poem is a window into my mindset and how I like to live my life. After this injury I might not want to fly as high, as I have learned the hard way that indeed the higher I fly the further I can fall.
Whats the point he asked?
Empowered I celebrate life
I fly high and grow food
There are no limits
Unlimited potential, this is truth
Less money, more happiness
It can be challenging and I am stubborn
With perseverance comes freedom
Let go and grow with the flow
Act impulsive and see where you go
Trouble can only teach, is what I like to preach
For this is my path, and I am free
Free to see, free to be
The higher I fly the I more see
And yes of course, the further I can fall
But as seriously unserious as this game is
The point is to be me, to be free, to shred!
The point is to didge and to dance!
The point is to uplift and fly high!
