Milestones - Poem by Jerry Behr Number 2

My bones creak and groan
making me lame with pain,
forcing me to hobble around
on crutches at home.

However, my mind still works
and it’s a “live wire”
and it still runs
while I can’t walk.

Twinges of pain prevent me
from bending down
making it hard for me
to put on my socks.

A milestone was reached when
my “live wire” mind met
the computer, the relationship
opened a whole new world.

Medicines help, but they
are not the be all and end all,
making me highly restricted
in what I’m allowed to do.

Further milestones were reached
when I connected the internet
giving my “live wire” mind
a far greater range.

So although lame and restricted
I’m free with the computer
and the internet so my mind can
fly around in the literary world.

Even though I belong to the
“grey haired set” and even though
I’m lame and hobbling around
my “live wire” mind is still young.

Free to write poetry
in any direction I please.
The lame man
dancing on the skies.
