Curse of the Flesh

I could never imagine some greater hell on earth
To test all of my worth than having rest and sleep
Kept out of reach, but this too shall teach and pass

Alas, my body is racked with pain making insane
What was wholly taken for granted for all of my life,
And it cuts like a knife, deep and hard for this bard

And do I cry for mercy now? Yes, as I humbly bow
To the only Power that can face my body’s rebellion
And overcome some sweet day I do hope and pray

So much time seems to have passed and yet not long,
For it is only months that I have been sore plagued,
Gnashing my teeth, anxiety crashing in on me, I see

But it feels like an eternity, this my curse of the flesh

    1. Thank you so very much! I believe the days and nights are getting better … I trust in my God and thank Him for being with me, in me and always beside me through this valley of darkness. He is faithful … God is faithful!

    1. Thank you so very, very much, Sheldon! I know you know very well what I’m talking about because you’ve been there, done that! Blessings to you, my friend!
