Painting by Eileen

ARTHRITIS { Self Portrait }

She stands very tall, very strong
Her feet planted firmly in the ground
She could weather any storm
She did not waver in the strongest wind
*
Her beauty was subtle, ever changing
Like the seasons, with the seasons
Her arms stretched out to hold up ones in need
Her branches leafed out to shade others
 *
Now shes old, wrinkled, knotted
Her limbs are twisted with pain
Oh Jehovah look, in your eyes shes still standing
Hopefully, forever to remain
*
