Mind and Body

Blistered, bleeding feet

Lacerated, exasperated ankles

Taught, distraught calves

Screaming, pleading knees

Burning, leaden thighs

Mildly offended tendons

Moaning, groaning bones

Complaining, straining backbone

Spine finding limits

Splitting, spitting shoulders

Smouldering, tension-tethered head

Dehydrated, slightly deflated, aching brain

Though subdued

All will endure

If the mind finds the inclination

The will, and determination

To lead
