I am left behind, but I enjoy time alone.
I am fragile but not weak.
I am embarrassed but not ashamed.
I am disabled, but I'm not hungry, wet, cold, or abused.
I don't walk in the woods, but I still sit by the ocean.
I don't sleep well at night, so I can't stay awake during the day.
I don't travel as much, but people come to me.
I don't work, but I remain relevant.
I don't walk, run, swim, or bike, but I still breathe, swallow, see, and speak.
I don't drive, but I am driven.
I am a born optimist, but I don’t like my chances.
I am a prisoner in this body, but I possess free will.
I am embattled, but I remain content.
I am frightened, but I am loved.
I am frustrated and discouraged, but more often I am amused and intrigued.
I worry about tomorrow, but I live for today.
