worry’s guest –
change binds me,
this waiting is venom,
caution enticing,
pursue transformation,
big, small – and diversion
to eliminate the parasites.
Intellect needs a cure,
neediness burdensome –
taking charge messy.
Responsibility my own.

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.

  1. WOW, powerful write, VJ. I can relate. It sounds trite, but as I’m learning yet again, “this too shall pass”–which makes me confident that your current situation will improve. Now the trick, for me, is not to reply with–“yes, but it (whatever it is) will be back this way again” 🙂 ❤
