Staircase

images

Not again I sigh

I brace myself for the climb

Stepping up with my right

Dragging up my left

The first steps I manage

Then the ache of strain

Begins to build until

I am awash with pain

I begin to rely on my arms

To drag myself up

Then feel the alarm

Of pain in my shoulder

Shooting into my neck

My left arm spasms

For the thousandth time

Hot needles burn my spine

There are too many injuries

Too much pain

Why must I endure this?

Again and again!
