I will not yield
I have come so close
You will not stop me
I am determined
Slowing down now
Would be like defeat
So instead let me finish
With a final hour’s push
I have read like five days’ worth of posts each the last couple of days and for the first time in MONTHS I see the days distinction in when the post was published instead of a date. I see the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak and in my push to start fresh for February I just need this last day. Then the month will begin my goal of keeping up with each day and posting more poems in the coming days and weeks. I have really missed sharing my writing and challenging myself to write “off topic” of what I usually do with some of the more interesting word prompts I find.
So, by the time I fall asleep tonight I will be once again caught up, have posted for the first and will be ready to read a little more at my leisure tomorrow. Thanks for sticking with me during my crazy long time I was behind and less visual. Now, off to read my last five days.

This is really impressive Leigha. I salute your dedication. Thanks for reading all my posts and leaving comments too. 💗💗💗
Thank you Sadje! It was my pleasure.
I have fallen behind in my reading of other bloggers’ posts because the drain of rehabilitation and the physical therapy and exercises leave me exhausted. I know I’ve missed a lot, but I just don’t yet have the energy up back and read all that I’ve missed over the past three weeks.
Unfortunately there is no way to get more energy. You will be back when you’re ready. Oh, and one way you can look at your limited resources as you recover, take a look at the spoon theory. It was written to explain chronic illness but it works for recovery too. https://www.washingtonpost.com/wellness/2023/01/14/spoon-theory-chronic-illness-spoonie/
An interesting article. I seem to run out of spoons pretty early in the day these days, making it a challenge to keep up with all of the exercises I’m supposed to do in order to hasten my recovery.
I hope soon you’ll have more spoons when you wake up.
Thanks. So do I.
