Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

The Shades of Fall


As the leaves are stripped

By the power of the wind,

So is my strength.

The once green grass

Now stark and desolate,

So is my health.

The deep red and oranges

Harken the coming of winter,

So do the deep body aches.

The beauty of these changes

The depth of colors,

So speak to the soul.

The crispness felt in the air

The scent of rain carried by the breeze,

So our understanding.

The trees, bushes and grasses

Into a deep slumber succumb,

So our conditions hide.

Life is preparing

For the darkness of winter,

So we endure a plethora of symptoms.

There is a quiet beauty

As the colors and leaves give way,

So is our determination.
