Last year I was a skeleton


United States

Last year I was a skeleton

no muscles,

just skin and bone.

I was pale and sick

But the help wasn’t enough.

I went to the hospital 

heart almost stopped.

Moved to Denver 

spent 6 months fighting 

for my life.

Came back to school

4 months in  

anxious, but not afraid.

This year I’m a person,

muscles strong.

I need less help,

because I have support.

I started school in September 

just like the others.

I have friends,

a job,

a life.
