Injured But Not Broken

storm cloud2

Injured but not broken,

Fallen but not crushed.

Brought down to earth;

Limping but surviving,

Asking for help,

Being vulnerable, feeling weak

Looking pitiful but not piteous,

Strong-minded but immobile.

Like a bird with a broken wing,

Waiting to heal,

Anxious to fly from the nest

Into the wide blue sky.

Asking for help at a time of vulnerability is very hard.  It is much easier to be on the giving side.  But good for the mind, body and soul to receive the gift of time and assistance from friends when battered or injured wings keep us in the nest.
