If I could write a letter to my body, it would say …

Dear Delicate Vessel of Mine,

You’re an absolute mystery to me
Waking up to a bold, astringent black tea
As you relish a reading from the Code of DaVinci
Skin tingling to the sight of the coral sea

Hands enable such meticulous notes
Empowering the mind within to vote
Legs traversing far and wide
In a march to express one’s pride

A dedicated immune system army
Attacking bacteria on a hellish landscape
Fever scorches the battle field journey
Host defense system seeks an escape

Despite the strength you have some days,
Help is needed to get through the maze
No need to fight imaginary hallucinations
After donning the armor of medications

Confiscate the germ
You set the terms
As it squirms
Be firm!

Appreciatively,
A Grateful Heart

Hello everyone! I'm a technical writer by day, creative writer by night. I have a wild imagination yearning for more in life. I'm fascinated by many subjects that have developed into a sort of mental and physical wanderlust that ultimately leads me to experience a variety of cultural shocks. Welcome to my journey and looking forward to reading your blogs!
