Resting

 Yesterday

At my pump refill

I got instructions

Slow down

I hurt myself recently

Trying to run

To get the door

And if I heard

Many times

They can wait

You’re straining your body

And not bouncing back

Accept the limitations

I’m not superhuman

I’m Regine

And that will

Have to do

If I don’t visit you all

I’m sorry

Sitting for too long

Is painful right now

I’m not admitting losses

I’m just acknowledging

The truth I’ve always known

But chose to subvert

  4. Great reminder for us all to slow down and rest!

    Getting casual in a dress and sneakers in my new post and hope you'll stop by.

  6. Hope you can rest. I know it's hard to be still. Take it easy. Although, easier said than done.

  17. Almost everyone has some kind of limitation and it's a shame some are not patient with those who have visible and invisible disabiities, causing rushing and hurting. I hope you can slow down, and allow the time to heal.Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
