I was scared
I was reaching
I was falling

That’s all I remember
Falling of that chair
Hearing that crack as my elbow hit the floor

Nobody thought I broke it
But I did
I thought it
I knew it
I felt it

The pain
The tears
As I sat there on the cold ground
Ice on my arm
Waiting for what
We should be gone
We should be at the hospital
We should be getting me help
I was crying
Couldn’t they see I needed help

It felt like a lifetime before we left
We were diving
More waiting
We were there
Even more waiting

Big room
No one was there
I was scared…again

Then one person
Someone I didn’t know
That person moved my arm
It was painful
She made me stay in that pain
I saw the lights flash
It happened again and again and again
More waiting
More waiting forever
Then the answers
They were right in front of me
Right in front of my face
I was right
It was broken
