Poem about Listening To Our Bodies
Body’s speaking all the time
Do we listen to it’s rhyme?
When we hear, do we take heed
Of things our body has need?
Starts off simple, feeling weak
When too many sweets we sneak.
Advances to an ache, pain,
Resulting from weight we gain.
Body spoke, do not complain
Could used umbrella ‘fore rain.
Use elevator, not stair,
Take pill, get auto lift chair.
Stop talking! Body I bade!
Vision of health starts to fade.
When ears fail body stays loud
Then silence. . . as rest in shroud
Are you in tuned to your body’s language? When you hear, do you heed?
I have been guilty of ignoring my body’s messages through the years. I am listening now. Is it too late? It is harder now.
