MS and The Buddha

Go slow58ceaecb39812a80-Buddha.jpg
Please go slow
Constant reminder
Of change
Of impermanence

Chronic dissatisfaction could engulf compassion

Manage loss
Grieve like a Bhuddda
Laugh like a Bhudda
And sit
And stand, if you can

My hands do not really touch
My legs do not really walk
But my eyes see
My ears hear and
Sometimes even listen
My voice speaks
My tongue tastes

I am alive
And Dying
As are we all
