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.
