One day at a time. 


There is no need for sudden movements. 

Let the stiffness 

That has come with 


Dissolve of its own accord. 

Trust that it will.

Trust in your body’s capacity 

To heal itself. 

Trust that time moves 


Then all at once. 

You are here, 

So you might as well 

Make the most of it. 

You might as well 


If they put you in a cast 

For months 

You will emerge 


Know at the very least 

You are changing 

Whether you see it or not. 

And don’t forget 

To wiggle your toes 

Every once in a while. 

It will serve you 

To remember 

What it feels like 

To move as you please.
