(It will be) Oh Kay

My first poem of 2015 is inspired by the gutsy Chestnut Kay. I thought the image of the Phoenix was fitting for us chronically ill types.


(It will be) Oh Kay

I take each day as it comes,
Take each day one by one.
Grit my teeth and flex those guns,
Howl at the moon and bang the drums.
Then step-by-step, bit by bit,
I'll haul myself out of this pit.
Bit by bit, step-by-step,
I'll prove I'm not beaten yet.
Slowly, slowly will I creep
Till my body lets me sleep.
At a snail's pace I'll rise.
I will regain a pain-free life.
