Gratitude Whirling

This week has been full of pain.

Physical & inescapable.

Insight waxes & wanes.

I am not capable.

But instead of spiralling,

Avoided melancholy.

A gratitude whirling,

Keeping me jolly.

You see I’m surrounded,

By those who care.

A wonder unbounded,

Making life fair.

Pain

Pain brings despair.

As the spasms flare.

I try not to care.

But I am laid bare.

Yet slowly I grope,

And try not to mope.

Discovering hope,

And know I can cope.

Of Pain

Electric bolt

Stabbing jolt

Aching

Undulating

Sore

Racked with pain

Unhelpful brain

Stinging

Whinging
