How hard the fight for gains,

wading through mire,

battling the blurred words,

crumbling beneath the crushing pressure.


Another day, perhaps a gain

of minutes of wellness.

Don’t over-do when the body is able

to accommodate desire to do more than

an errand or two before succumbing.

Daily battles.

How goes the war?

I cannot fathom a positive outcome any more.

What do you think?
