We feel it
Good or bad
No in between
We need it but don’t have enough
I’d pay $4.99 a gallon just to be able to move some days
I’ll cut you off if the energy isn’t feeling right
Have you ever been somewhere or around someone and you instantly feel the energy is off?
Yes, that’s instinct but also a form of energetic vibration
The body is equipped with this internal alarm system
The more you use it, the more it vibrates to your benefit
Energy never lies.
Some days I barely have enough energy to walk
Is this what near death feels like?
How much caffeine can flow through my body to force myself to shower (or care to)?
I lay and stare at the walls in silence
Thinking of all that I’d do - if I had the energy
I think about hiking a scenic trail with aromatic flowers
Painting a masterpiece
Taking my son to Disneyland
Cooking a yummy meal
Going on a date
Taking a phone call
Reading a good book
Brushing my hair
Cleaning the house
Shaving my legs (from the knee up)
Oh those were the days - over the knee shaves!
Exhaustion sets in just discussing it
“Just get up!” they say
“Just go away!” I say
Maybe gas prices will go down next week
Until then, I’ll take a nap.
