Can You?

Numbness in my fingers
Stiffness in my Legs.
Everything Must Stay Frozen
For my Life I Live I Beg.
And Movement Is Freedom
Decay is Not an Option
I Stare at the Bones in my Hand
Knowing This Isn’t Random.
Can I Stop a Fast Moving Train?
Gripping The Rails with my Toes
Should I Exercise A Muscle?
When it Will Only Go.
I Live a Beautiful Life
Balancing on One Leg Instead of Two.
Though I Can Say I’m Brave
Can you?
