He was crippled
but only on the inside
in a place where no one can see

“...broken beyond repair”
they liked to tell him

yet he didn't take any pills
no drugs, excessive sex, or alcohol

“..he's a good kid”
they said that too

but only on the inside
in a place no one can see

He was crippled
“...broken beyond repair”
