I'm in lots of pain tonight, because I (shock!) opened a window from a less-than-ideal angle.  So I guess I'll get on the poetry bandwagon.
Rage fills my soul,
Hatred of this thing that won't let me DO!
Can't get it out -
Kicking, punching, running, jumping,
Dancing freely,
All forbidden long ago.
Absorb it deeply,
Push it down,
Make it into something else:
Acceptance, transcendence, wisdom,
A truce with my enemy.
Can it ever be?
This too shall pass...   
.......fibromyalgia, hearing loss, elevated liver enzymes, skin grafting (back), arthritis, scoliosis, lumbar disc damage, sciatica, IBS, migraines, tachycardia, cancer surgeries (face).......I take Nortriptyline & Clonopin daily, and Darvocet as needed

Achey, I liked was a good release for you. Writing it out is theraputic.
Poetry is a form of journaling and it does get a person's creative side flowing. I
write poetry about everything and found it a good distraction to pain.

Hope you feel better my friend!

Great poem Achey.

I used to write all the time when I was younger but haven't wrote anything in 11 years since my father passed away.
