fallen
I fell today
Skidded 20 feet on the pavement
As if someone dragged me on the road
and then knocked me unconscious

I hurt today
Broke my body
As if I fell off my bike and tore up my knees
only there was no blood, just pain

I wanted to give up today
Let go of my beliefs
As if they caused this pain in the first place
leading me by the hand

I prayed today
Wanted an answer
As if God grants made-to-order wishes
I should know better
