Second Chance


How would you feel

Not being whole

Being called “freak”

Because you don’t possess feet.


There are many in this position

With the tables turned against them

Not being allowed a chance

Due to their crippled condition.


However, there is a job that

Could end or combat

The horrible fate

Of being confined to a chair.


If I were

To become a

Biomechanical engineer

I could repair this.


Some people deserve

A second chance

A new lease on life

An end to their strife.


An engineer of this sort

Could change another’s life

That’s why I want

To become a biomechanical engineer.
