A LIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE


SMACK!
Hit by an SUV
Head on at night
The driver under the influence
And a young man towards home returned
A handsome kid
Now disfigured and burned
With a crushed liver
And partial paralysis
A budding national cellist
Who taught others music
But now lays in intensive care
For a month as John Doe
His mom looked everywhere
If not for the selfless act
Of one innocent bystander
Breaking the glass to extract
And pulling him out of the flames
In fact
Today he would not be
But for now he's in recovery


All my prayers are with you
