No Longer The Same

L5-S1 is the more common known name
Destruction of these a deadly game

For almost a year unable to move
Struggling to show I had everything to prove

Losing not just the use of my legs
Looking for answers to what my heart begs

Please why me, why happen now
Unable to control my head I do bow

Surgery cost me two inches at least
The pain subsided to a tolerable beast

Almost six years later my scar still shows
Everyday a challenge that no one really knows

No longer do I need my walker to guide me 
No more can to depend on I'm finally free

The future is uncertain as it races past
Wishing tomorrow is better than the last

Before this thing gets a good hold
I'd like my story to be known, to be told

The reason I'm at home with my boys
Not always able to play with them and their toys
