research says,
holds the key
to this malaise –
DNA failing to generate
required energy

I push against
facts, strive
to hoist
this stricken body
from the tedious mire –

await renewal
of momentum,
push again

a hopeless cycle.

(Penned for DVerse’s Quadrille #59, prompt: cycle.  Thank you to kim881 for hosting.)


  1. As we get older, sadly the cycle of health does slow us down, but debilitating illnesses seem to have their own speed, stop-and-go. Keep pushing, there’s always hope, especially with a grandchild (mine will soon be four months old and I’m determined to keep going for him). 🙂
