NaPoWriMo Day 1

(I did write this yesterday, but due to a busy schedule, I didn't have time to post it until this morning.)


Convalescence


All day my body
accepts what it is -
      car-wrecked-
      feeling five years older than it should.

All day I do
what I still can
      waiting
      for my
      self
      to grow back.

Living has become an exercise
in patience
      and accepting limits;
      the abilities of others;
      care over independence.

All day I wait
for healing and try
      to be content
      in the fact that I still exist.
