POEMS COURTESY OF BLOSSOM

In frailties and difficulties, staggering in the face of it’s might.

We are bewildered and sometimes we try to move slowly, saying nothing, telling no one.

We become zapped of energy and strength to carry on, we convince ourselves that this is the way it should be until our strength begins to fail us.

Gradually we’re aware that our form is fragile but deep down something inside bulges us that we’re not.

Standing we rise amidst broken bones and departing zeal with untapped energy as our spirit whispers to our soul that there’s a new us emerging.

Unsteadily we stand again, moving to place one foot in front of the other this time unsure of the realities of things but certain of our victory in it.
