Two Steps Forward…

Two steps forward, one step back,
Illness is like peeling an onion, one symptom following another,
Being revealed,
While energy do I lack.

Two steps forward, one step back,
Pain is like an internal razor,
Tearing away at my soul,
While life is being held back.

Two steps forward, one step back,
Medicating is like being robbed,
Foggy headed, memory loss,
While knowing that without, existence will begin to crack.

Two steps forward, one step back,
Isolation is like a life severely and utterly without,
No fun, no outings, poor existence,
While friendships begin to crack.

Two steps forward, one step back
Appointments like a full-time job,
Doctor after doctor, waiting rooms filled with ailments,
While praying for a cure, this lure, will always bring you back.

Two steps forward, one step back,
Mindfulness is like a saviour,
Bringing peace, bringing hope, bringing strength,
While practicing meditation, along life’s journey, along a destined track.

Two steps forward, one step back,
Fulfillment like a cup overflowing,
A life filled with gratitude, acceptance and overwhelming joy
While manifesting a healthy existence, fending off an ever looming black.

Health & Happiness
