The poetry sharing continues this week! Here’s another poem I wrote this spring about various lessons learned as I’ve committed to my health being top priority.
My Body, Healing
It’s a process-an imperfect one.
I take food out, put it back in,
then binge on sugar.
Nice try. Start over.
Go back to work at a fourth school.
Admit you want to write instead.
Attend a concert until midnight.
Just know that you’ll need a day alone tomorrow.
Tag along to a hockey game.
Leave because there’s too much noise.
Visit the dentist.
Let her know that X-rays are harmful to you.
Plan a trip.
Communicate how tired you’ll get.
Go to a restaurant.
Is there a gluten-free menu?
Spend a day alone.
Let others deal with their shit without you.
