Dreams do come true if you only wish hard enough. (Peter Pan)
The picture-perfect vista on the wall
was captioned in the style of Peter Pan –
that limits only cow the cowardly
while those who challenge and defy, will win.
Beneath the vista in the treatment room,
the therapist who knows the harsh terrain
of injury and coaches those compelled
to trek its weary paths, applies her skills
to mitigate; at best perhaps restore
the stricken limb to function as before.
Since pixie dust and robust self-belief
can never bring reality to heel,
her practice shows the caption is a sham:
the cosmos will not budge for Peter Pan.
