Precious Body – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

I didn’t think it was too much to ask  for

Always striving not to demand or be selfish.

Just to make  me look less of an eyesore

To straighten my  back for me, to just grant  that wish.

 

I know they mended me and put  me back together

Pinned  and fused me  and filled me with cement.

But  am I selfish  to want  not to have a curved body  forever

However hard I try I will not be straight  again, but slightly  bent.

 

I’ve always  known I am better off than  so many

Blessed in lots ways the truth be known.

But if I could have a wish granted it would not be just any

Only to wake and find my spine un-curved  had grown.

 

Please don’t think me spoilt  and churlish

I know I stand and walk  and bend

But I’d like  my posture to be more stylish

But I must accept that I am lucky not to be crippled my friend.
