BAD BEFORE BETTER
(4/6/19)


we live

we get
sick

we get
injured
physically

we get
damaged
emotionally

often
the healing
is worse
than the original
hurt

drawn
out
over longer
periods
of time

seemingly
forever away
from the
normal routines
of want

living lives
we would
never
choose
to lead

we long
for a past
that has passed
us by

a state
that no longer
exists

we must
accept
our limitations

the crutches
or our
discontent

and realign
our realities
in order
to maintain
our sanity

"you might
want
to stay off
of that
for awhile"
