Just a Scratch

Catching my foot on the invisible root,

I crash down without warning.

Breathing hard, frowning, heart sinking,

I catch my breath and pull myself up.

Only a scratch , I think, and begin a slow plod, hoping not to feel pain.

Thoughts rushing through my head,

What did I trip on ?

Pick up my feet!

Am I injured?

Adrenaline pumping, heart racing, flight or fight.

Only a scratch. No pain. Pick up the pace.

I keep going, thankful that I can.

 

Thanks for stopping by! If you want to watch something very inspirational, I highly recommend this film by Billy Yang about Dave Mackey, a pro trail runner who had his leg crushed, then amputated, and still finished the Leadman race.
