I see your thorn


I am definitely entitled to have arthritis at my age. Sometimes such as today, it hurts and has a nice knot sticking out. I have to make choices on these days as to baby the pain or get through it.

Today, I got through it. It still aches but I did manage to pull some weeds, trim a shrub and sweep the porch. Although it hurts my fingers and wrist, I received joy from my work.

Go away, thorns of pain

I don’t want you here today

I’ll ignore you the best I can

And show you I’m the stronger man

You’ve thrown some curve balls my way

But today, I missed them and enjoyed my day.
