Knocked clean off your feet

Post  peewee on Mon Mar 26 2012, 15:49

Knocked clean off your feet




When you think that it’s all better
And you’ve covered everything
You don’t see the warnings
Don’t hear alarm bells ring

Working extra hours
Keeping all the bills paid
Feeling a little complacent
Even think you’ve got it made

Then when you least expect it
Someone pulls the rug
And without any warning
You get struck down with a bug

Knocked clean off your feet
You just don’t know what to do
Stuck in bed with pains in your head
And no one to look after you

It seems to take for ages
Before normality will return
But it sure makes you think
And a lesson you should learn

Never become complacent
Take good care of yourself
You’re no good to yourself or anyone
If you disregard your health

Truer words were never spoken Pete. I'm suffering now for the way I handled my health (didn't handle it:-) in the past. So keep writing. I think your work in words keeps you going!

Hugs, bev

Knocked Clean Off Your Feet

PeeWee,
This is such a great poem and so true...I was knocked off my feet for 10 yrs!
I am so grateful to be cancer free and feeling healthy again!!
