Who Am I?

I sit and peek at you from behind the palmettos that grow abundant in my home. Quiet and content, I watch the daily happenings in the shade. I don't move fast as my reflexes have slowed down with time. I don't like fast moving objects. When I first came to the sanctuary, I was hurt and couldn't hardly walk. I am strong and decisive. I have adapted to my home and through the years, I have memorized my territory. This is how I have learned to walk again. I know how I must move no matter where I am in my home. Having familiar surroundings, I am not stressed. I have done the best I could.
