Oh God, I've fallen and bruised again.

Blood drips from my weak knees….

exposed in embarrassment for everyone to see.

No biggie.  It's happened before, and it will most likely happen again.

Got a scar here, have a bruise there.

A cut exposed from a sharp turn…

A turn gone wrong,

Need to find my way…will take some time, but I have a map.

While I'm down, should I stay down?

And hide?

I'll think for a sec.

I see the scar on my wrist- it's now a light shade,

sometimes scars do that, at times they tend to fade.

But for now I'll put a band aid on my weak knees.
