My elbow is bloody, my knee is blue.
My goodness you say, whatever did you do?
While running a trail and having a ball.
Over a boulder i happened to fall.
A boulder, my goodness, how did you not see?
Well actually twas more a small root from a tree.
And so down i went in spectacular style.
And lay with my face in the dirt for a while.
Till friends pulled my up all hiding a laugh.
And headed me back down the treacherous path.
My goodness you said, should you not call it quits?
Before your poor body is broken to bits.
What, i said, not even a chance.
This was not my first fall and it won’t be my last.
Happy weekend trailing all and try to stay upright.
