10 years

10 years
Time stops
Then flies
Dragging me along

10 years
What happened?
Where am I?
Four walls of a sterile room

10 years
They’re gone
Why me?
Only the good die young

10 years
A helping hand
Week after week
Saving my life

10 years
A fresh start
A screeching halt
Wide-eyed at 3 AM

10 years
Answer questions
Nothing more
Trauma takes its hold

10 years
Deep breaths
Count to five
Just trying to survive

10 years
Without you
Finding me
A woman with a purpose

I wanted to share a poem I wrote as I reflected on the 10 years of my life since the car accident.
