Hour 9: this too shall pass

This too shall pass, I think as another pain

shivers through me. I take another step, catching my

reflection out of the corner of my eye. That is a walk

of a warrior. My legs have powered through so much.

My arms and shoulders have consoled the brokenhearted,

and carried the weak and dying.

This injury – a small hiccup –

this will pass.
