Poet/Artist – Body betrayal


My eyes are not betraying me

They are healing from the battle

My body did not turn on me

It fights and grows with and in strength

This time away from normal life

Is life

Life changes

Life moves

Life isn’t today or tomorrow

It is now

This second

This millisecond

My legs are back

Weaker than before, but they are back

My taste buds are rejoicing

And my body is thankful

My brain is building, again

New insights have been found


I’m the entirety of the whole

I’m Life
