Why Me?

By J.N.B. © 2018 



Why me?

Why was I one to be strapped to this board, against my will, fighting, struggling to get away.

Why was I one, unable to defend myself, to be subjected to that fierce horror of the blade.

Why am I one who never got to experience all that I was meant to experience -- never to feel in a way I was meant to feel.

Why am I one who must live with the consequences of another's action upon my body.

Why am I one who battles the knowing, and the unknown, all at once.

Why am I one told to let it go. To man up. Told it doesn't matter.

Why this board.

Why this way.

Why me?
