Crutch less

by joetwo

Crutch less I am forced to just get moving

Without support I have to act

Without help I must do

The crutch is not there, by choice or design it is not there

How can I go without it?

How can I do what I must?

What are my options?

To close myself up, creep into my shell

The temptation of hiding getting stronger

Or I can go on

Realise that the crutch is not necessary

That my life is not defined by it

So from then on I can walk with confidence and pride

Standing tall, on my own.
