Pain is relentless like a ruthless stalker

It is a long hard road to travel upon

When every step feels like a weapon

Turned against this stubborn walker

Pain is relentless like a ruthless stalker

My knees creak like an old rusted door

Walking in agony but how much more

Can they really be expected to take?

Before their replacement with fake

My shoulders bear the weight of my stress

Do not touch them or even lightly press

Or once I complete my pained scream

I have a very specific retaliatory dream

Once long ago, in the past, I roamed free

Running for hours was nothing to me

I could jump, climb, and swim fast

But all of that and more is in the past

What am I now, battered and broke?

My physical health is quite bespoke

Created in pain and degradation

My self care a state of dehydration

I do my best and more goes wrong

Sometimes life is just a way to prolong

The suffering already written on my slate

Maybe that is all, this is my full fate

I really hope my fate is not sealed

That there is a lot more revealed

Until that time I keep the fight

Past wrongs I am trying to right

Actually caring for my body and mind

Trying to be self compassionate and kind

I seek advice and actually follow it

Trying to make mind and body gently fit

This is not the story end

I will continue to tend

To try and strive for better

Following orders to the letter

Well I will try at the very least

Patience is not my friendly beast



My current travelling companion – crutches and a pillow for my left foot

  1. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to


    1. I am using WordPress and find it an excellent place for my writing. The support system for bloggers, the courses and the activities available are really inspiring. The theme is from WordPress free themes and is called Greyzed – which I fell in love with last night and changed to it from the Suits theme. I have not heard of or experienced the other platforms you identified. I hope this helps.


  2. We’re a goup off volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community.
