A soul awakened

He lay there, unable to move 
a vibrant young man, his mistake
going too fast on a wet greasy road
slipped slithered and crashed into a wall
His life was rugby, football all sports 
forever keeping fit, had new girl
will she stay around, doesn’t want pity just love, 
love of each others hearts

He has lain there for 6 months now
feels the inevitable twitch now and again
just muscles flexing themselves, 
giving hope to the person without any, until that day
His surgeon came to him, “
There is a breakthrough, always an element of risk”
Without a second to think he answers
I am ready to take that chance

Epidural spinal cord stimulation and repeated motion training.
After a short time he can now stand for a few minutes
and move his toes.
His soul is awakened belief in prayer answered he smiles again
Hard work and hope will bring him through
The light at the end of the tunnel is now near.
