Aloha! I'ts me ...
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
Reaching the wooden cabin before ten o'clock,
Our ski-doo club was in need of great
To work we went, fighting against the
Packing our stuff, heading back to town,
We'd stopped for gas and chatted a while.
Driving away, side by side on a gravel
At speeds of 60 MPH, we felt free and
A moment of inattention and my fate was
Looming straight ahead of me was a hydro
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
I catapulted through the air like a trapeze
Upon impact, numbness left me in a state
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.
