My body is wise. When it needs my attention,
It provides me with signs too countless to mention.
This week it was grumpy and demanded much more.
Tossing patience aside, it let out a roar.
Though terse and defiant, it needs to be firm.
To teach me to listen, to balance, to learn.
And so I surrender and give up the fight.
I befriended the calm and accepted my plight.
I know I am stubborn and reluctant to rest.
but the lesson is clear, my body knows best.
