       as you may have guessed, i hurt myself. i was dancing and i popped my kneecap way out of place and a sprained a tendon. GREAT. homecoming is tonight (oct. 22, 2004) and guess who cant go? doug says he isnt bummed cause he has a way of making it up. guess what? he came to my house at 2 o'clock this morning just to bring me get well roses. aw. anyway, this is about the resentment of my crutches.

    The metal beams
    glare at me;
    Ice cold silver
    reflects my resentment
    to what is holding me back...
    ...I can't dance,
    .......I can't play,
    ........Hell, I can barely WALK
    without the assistance
    of these stupid, friggin' crutches!

    If only I had listened
    when Mom told me to hem the cuffs of my pants
    so I wouldn't trip;
    If only I didn't twirl on the cement floor
    in my socks and slip;
    If only I was smart enough to balance and lucky enough to have the graceful gene passed on to me...oh, wait, that gene never existed...
    Well, if only I had been SMART
    I wouldn't have this friggin' brace on my leg,
    which, by the way, itches more than any wool sweater,
    and I would have to be dependent
    on these friggin' metal bars
    that hold me back!
