I want to contribute.

I want to be functional.

I want to not be seen as a disappointment.

Yet, I am unable to work.

I need time to heal.

I need to care for others before myself.

And so,

I am a leech on society.

Letting them prop me up

until one day

I can hopefully be standing free.

As one of them among the crowds again.
