Empty Surges

Measured in spoonfuls
progress imperceptible

Still feel the angst of
no-time-to-breathe lifestyle

pressured from within
to get-it-done

spend unavailable resources
ruminating solutions

push against the walls
with little to show

surrender to impotency
and wait for the next surge.

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.
