Aloha! I'ts me ...


My Sports team


In a small Northern Ontario town, 
On a Sunday morning, the air is crisp. 
Awakened by the sound of revving engines, 
Unaware of what lies in the mist.
Friends and I roared down a wilderness road. 
Reaching the wooden cabin before ten o'clock, 
Our ski-doo club was in need of great repair. 
To work we went, fighting against the clock.
Packing our stuff, heading back to town, 
We'd stopped for gas and chatted a while. 
Driving away, side by side on a gravel road, 
At speeds of 60 MPH, we felt free and wild.
A moment of inattention and my fate was sealed. 
Looming straight ahead of me was a hydro post. 
Steering the motorbike between the post and the wire, 
In the air I went, hoping for the most.
Tall, wheat-like grass lay ahead of me, 
My back wheel connected with a hidden rock. 
I catapulted through the air like a trapeze artist. 
Upon impact, numbness left me in a state of shock.
Left paralyzed from the waist down, 
I'm learning a new way of life. 
It has been twenty-six long years, 
With every passing day, I'm holding on.

The portrait below clearly shows that if an individual has dreams and they really believe in themselves, plus the support of family and friends; they can attain their goals in life. If you're one of them; therefore, do whatever is humanly possible to reach the top.
