A Pain In The Arm

Is A Real Pain In The As*

I felt good but it was not long before I knew different

A shooting pain from my left elbow to my wrist

Every turn or twist I feel an ache

I tried to shake it off and put it out of my mind

Inside I cry with a simple silent whimper

I move it this way and then that a way

Trying to work itself out

Pulling on my fingers as if I was a doctor no less

Reaching my arm way above my head

As if I was a sign held higher than the trees

A wiggle a shake who am I kidding

My arm gives me pain that I can explain

I have been doing the same job for too long

The same motion over and over

My body takes its toll

I pay for it dearly

So I take three tylenol to take away my troubles

Hurry up and work

Is that to much to ask

I rest my hand on my lap

Only to talk to it once more

Listen hand you have been here through it all

You are one of the best friends I have

If you would put a good word in for me to my elbow and my wrist

Tell them to back off and cut me some slack

I will rest all of you tonight and in return you will let me get some sleep

We all make sacrifices for things we have to do

I don't know a way around this one as my fingers cringe

Let me sleep on it and maybe tomorrow I will have a better idea

But for now each tingle feels like little pins and needles

Pass the word along to the rest of my body

Lets all work together now and heal my body any way it can

Using my mind and body as a team

To make my whole body feel like a soft pillow all comfortable and nice

Not my big toe sqeezed in a vice

Wonderful....... Big toe in a vice.....Oh how I know that feeling. What a relief wen it passes. Keep talking to your body.

a) to make me laugh

b) to make you better.

Actually a and b should be the other way around.

Any shooting pain going up anywhere in the body is bad. My sciatica acts up on rainy days and I can hardly move my leg on the left side and then that nerve gives me cramps. I tell you I'm all for stuff like meditation to relax the body among other things. I'll pray from here for your pain to go away and you pray for me and perhaps the two will clash and no pain.
