So many things can handicap,
and often they will overlap.
Because the body and the mind
are so intricately entwined.
Quite interestingly the brain
is where we process all our pain.
So though the damage is elsewhere,
it’s brains that manage this affair.
Thus, if you’ve got a broken bone,
the fuss is not from there alone.
You must have heard it often said,
the thrust of pain is from your head.
The way you think upon a day
determines if the pain will stay.
If in your mind you do your best,
sometimes the pain is laid to rest.
Those who practice meditation
suffer less with dubitation.
For they control their thought process,
and therefore all their stress is less.
Thus enabling them to think,
making pain levels start to sink.
Others might want to pop some pills
to fight away their pain and ills.
But drawbacks of medication
can lead to more debilitation.
So if you do avoid that path,
you won’t accrue the aftermath.
Even the most minute mishap
can end up as a handicap.
You need to have an attitude
that leaves you with some latitude.
