Deep stress on the system, too much to fend off,
The alarm bells are ringing, and cannot be stopped,
This whole grid section has simply gone down,
There’s no power to smile, no power to frown.
The connections are severed, inflamed and enraged,
And no U.N. exists, to pull rank on this stage,
Until calm is restored, peace talks won’t begin,
So the first port of call’s finding patience within.

This piece details the beginning of my experience, with the condition I recently suffered with, known as Bell’s Palsy, which began some five weeks ago. I can thankfully say that I am now fully recovered, hence me beginning to share my poetry again.
Ironically, this piece shares a similar narrative to what it would have, if I’d chosen to write about this Coronavirus pandemic instead, granted with the exception of a line or two.
In my case, I had to fight the urge to be busy minded; the urge to force my recovery along with facial exercises (which actually could have rewired my nerves incorrectly); and the urge to ignore the recommendation of bed rest; I had to try my best to be patient.
I think I did pretty well, practicing mindfulness; resting plenty; using the wonderful Wim Hof breathing technique and cold showers daily; showing gratitude for all of my blessings, despite my pain and discomfort; and continuing to eat healthily.
All that’s left to say is, where there’s a will, there’s a way, my friends.
Love and Respect always,
