Conditions

A parade of aches, pains and conditions.

Our lives are conditioned on these conditions.

Can’t live without them;

So we learn to live with them.

Going through a door

as others have before.

Learning to navigate

what doctors are for.

One says don’t lift

heavy objects.

Never liked to do it,

but humiliation tempts 

me to pursue it.

What’s normal

and predictable

can be lonely 

and despicable.

If we let it.
