Written by Sue Racaniello for the RSDSA blog.
My body used to walk through life unaware of it’s surroundings
It was a vehicle to get me to point B
It’s supposed to be that way, or is it?
Should I feel every nuance around me?
Every whisper of the wind on my hand, every inch of earth beneath my foot?
I’m still trying to sort this out
And figure out how to go about
I have to strike a balance
To stay in tune with people around me
While I control the pain inside thee
Each step with my foot
Or grasp of my hand
Transports me to a no mans land
I hear people talking, And I do reply
But I won’t recall
Because I wasn’t focused at all
The next phase of my recovery
Will be to overcome, and act on my discovery
I’m not a quitter
And I refuse to be bitter
I will integrate the two worlds I live in
One of pain and the other, amongst the living
I cannot let them collide, I gently need to set the divide
I may not feel this way tomorrow
I may just be filled with sorrow
But for today I’m on my way
