I awakened today

with a heaviness

that I could not escape.

Lacerating pain

oppressing not just the body,

but tormenting the mind.

Weary of the battle,

unable to fortify

against the alliance

I surrendered.

Conceding, not to defeat

but to acceptance.

Ever mindful

in the daily battle

against pain

victory comes

in abstaining from

self-judgments

and reinforcing

self-compassion.
