Second chance #poetry

Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt #221
I’d been set on destruction
One foot almost past completion
Along a doomed route
Hinged onto the apparent out
Cut skin, bruised knuckle
Not a thing raised a heckle
Broken bones, scarred heart
Steady on foot and scared a lot
From nowhere, I had a sudden trip
A palm out, in reach of grip
My plans were thwarted
I was saved and restarted
