A day in the life of the Shankster
I tackle the challenges that keep streaming in
to an electronic in-box that measures my wins,
since our mission is worthy: we help people heal.
Addressing co-workers, I try hard to peel
back the layers of pessimism, contempt and dismay
while laughing and joking and mixing in play.
Extra stress builds up, so I head to the Y,
Striding and lifting and stepping to highs!
I’m inspired by soreness, I feel that it’s good.
It promises muscles that work as they should.
Depleted, yet smiling I seek out some chow
Delicious re-charging that sweetens the now.
I spar some with Nicko, in words or in play,
his spirit’s a bright spot in almost every day!
I move off to blog world to see what you’ve found
blissfully noticing my feet on the ground!
