Bruised, Not Broken ~ A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

Walt's Writings


Two weeks ago today I had abdominal surgery
and came home on Wednesday, September 18
th.
I’m feeling pretty good and will be om limited
activity for 6-8 weeks. I have started writing again
and will be posting on a regular basis. You are all a part
of my journey and I am grateful for all of you.

I am bruised
But not broken
And I’m back
I’ve been opened
Closed
Given pills
And more pills
I told them what hurt
It didn’t help
Food was good
But I couldn’t eat
I’m still bruised|
But not broken
And I’m better
Hospital staff was good to me
And for that
I am thankful
It’s good to be home
