I can't take it anymore...

Pain,
It dwells upon me, making me cringe.
It hurts; it hurts just as if a bullet had pierced through my back.
Tears of sorrow, for me, swarms within my head.
Pain,
Utter confusion fills my head, pictures of healthy body flash across my eyes.
Why would it choose me to settle upon?
Why me?
Pain,
It makes me cry, makes me shriek, it feels as if I have not won.
My eyes close, white surrounds my eyelids,
I’m gone.
But am I lost forever?

It had all taken, just one, tiny mistake.
The mistake to run to fast, the mistake that put me on the bench.
I had broken my back.
I had fought for so long, and I was not ready to give it up,
I was not going to give away everything that I had worked for,
Not now.
My tiny childish body flashed across my eyes,
A precious little girl, taking her first pitch,
Hitting her first hit,
Hitting her first homerun,
Getting better as the years progress.
There I was, standing in the batter’s box,
Load,
Trigger,
BOOM, it’s gone,
Over the fence; homerun.

Running so fast, feeling so proud,
Fast forward, I’m in a hospital bed,
My career is over,
I worked so hard,
And now it’s all lost.
I can’t help but think about what will happen,
To those who believed in me;
My family, my friends,
Now it’s all gone;
Forever.
