I strapped my leg into the brace, and remembered days when I could race. Run a race or walk a while, so many memories it made me smile.
For with a pack upon my back these legs had travelled far and wide, and through the years had journeyed far now shorter steps replace their stride.
Now up the road or down a lane, whatever’s safe whatever’s sane. This is my world however small, the distance less so I don’t fall.
