If I have to crawl, or claw. If I must rend and tear, bite or be poked and prodded. If I have to ache and groan and moan, or sigh a heavy sigh. If I have to have a thousand needle sticks or If I have to suffer through a thousand days like today to witness one minute of joy from a beloved family member or friend, to hear of a good deed by humanity, then do not hesitate to think I will do all this and overcome it. My body’s weaknesses cannot conquer the strength of my spirit. I’m not going to allow it. Peace.
