The bruise was an omen,
When a blood sample was taken.
The results would be depressing,
To say the least.
My iron level was low,
As well as a cure,
Weren’t an option
In an I.V.
As I begin to understand normalcy,
An I.V. will deflate and humble me.
But I will move,
Rather than become immobilized,
Because I am a worker, an accomplisher. A doer.
