To all of you who read my poetry, thank you,

Thanks for your support, I appreciate it.

I was originally hurt at work 3 and a half years ago,

They weren’t my friends anymore, those who came to Christmas parties.

After 18 years I was the enemy now, through all of the lies and criminal

Activity I did overcome, I went to court this past Thursday and won everything.

I am unfortunately fully disabled, I never quit and do my own work out and physical therapy,

I have made it through jobs my whole life and they asked how I did it, strength and prayers.

The world finally listened, A battle of scars, nightmares and a lot of pain, inside and out,

I write, swim, and walk, I will make it through, Thanks always, Have a great holiday season,

Stay safe and be strong always, Keith Garrett, Man of many thoughts.

  1. Congrats Man,
    I have a sister in law experiencing this same thing. They give you smiles and condolences in the same room they have a party for the “new guy”! Stick to your faith and loved ones.
    Good luck.

  2. When I was 18 my car was hit by a drunk driver, sent into head on traffic, and hit again. I was told I was disabled and I’d never lead a normal life. I, too, lost all my friends (because I was no longer fun; instead, I was a reminder that we aren’t indestructible). It took time, and effort, and though I still I have limitations and the pain is there every day, my ‘new normal’ is a very able and fulfilled life. You’ve got the right attitude, and I hope your ‘new normal’ is a wonderful, enjoyable life as well. It’s true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger – it just might be in ways we never expected. I wish you all the best.
    ~ Shannon
