My Back Hurts

Sharp stab under my shoulder blades

Radiating muscle spasms

Neck stiffness

Is this from carrying the weight of the world?

Is this from being stabbed in the back?

My garden?

Is this the wall around my heart falling apart?

Can I see this as healing and hope and not stuckness and fear?

Can I accept that it is here for a reason and not resist and try to understand or fix it?

Old bones, unused muscles, tired tissue.

Perhaps a message to “Wake up”

Time to stretch….my body, my mind, my spirit.
