Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

Piling Up


The mounding snow

Accumulating deeper and deeper

Temperatures not warming

Allowing the depth to grow.

Just as pain increases

The effects escalate

Hours and days after activity

Adding to our symptoms.

The peaceful tranquility

The quiet that is intensified

Soft snow with no sound

Only once frozen will

The crunch of each step be heard.

Just as our appearance

Displays no image of

The war that wages inside

The only tell-tell sign

Our awkward gait

Inability to recall

Or the wheelchair I use.
