All these Years

January 24, 2010
9 years of not understanding
9 years of observation
9 years

3 years of doctors
almost every 2 weeks
3 years of bruises
3 years of hiding
3 years

3 years of braces
that barely fit
3 years of too big clothes
3 years of being
too self-conscious

3 years of not knowing
for sure
3 years of X-rays
3 years of nonsense

1.5 years since the surgery
Almost 2 years since
i was told i was going
to get it "fixed"
this disease
that would make me worse
without the surgery

1.5 years since the change
1.5 years since i began again
1.5 years of this scar

All these years
of this disease
called scoliosis
