Collar Bone

Have you ever broken a bone?

When I was 16 years old I decided

To take my 10 speed bike

For a ride in my neighborhood.

I went down a grassy hill

At full speed, never thinking

Of holes in the grass.

My front wheel hit a whole

And a went flying head first,

Landing on my left side,

Passing out.

When I woke up I tried

Getting up with my left arm

And I realized something

Was not good because

Of the immense pain.

My mom took me to the doctor ,

Took X-rays and saw my collarbone

Was fractured.

He put a sling on me

That pulled my shoulders back.

It took several weeks to heal

So no surgery was the thing back then.
