My Spinal fusion

by Jackarrie

How to cope with this extreme pain
It's serious, the doctor did ascertain
Fearful my depression would return
Peace of mind is all that I yearned
So I put in place what I had learned
To know my limits, then make a choice
By listening to my internal voice
Our inner self is our own adviser
Allowing our thoughts to be much wiser
I couldn't use my body so I used my mind
At least that part of me was not confined.
My overactive mind was always a pest
Now it's the time to put it to the test
I brought art into my impoverished world
From that moment my whole life unfurled

the painting is a french scene I painted for my daughter.
