Aging, I am
and disabled,

Escape is proposed
my oozing scars
beg a stand
discover determination

This slumbering
has become impulsive
need discipline
to quiet the pain

I am whiny
counselling bedrest
prone to coddling

need to shake off
this disoriented
weakened state –
escaped is proposed.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
