D is for Determination - Write Through Menopause

I am determined to not let my moods and exhaustion keep me from the page. Vitamins help with this, but if I don't see them I don't take them and I haven't taken them in awhile. I thought I left them in one of my bags because I hadn't noticed them on the counter where I usually put them front and center. Lo and behold they were on the counter, but had been pushed back behind other supplements. Now they are at the front again so I will see them every morning and take them. I know how much better I feel when I take them on a regular basis.

feeling old in my bones
heavy and sluggish
brain fog floating through
going outside to hug a tree
and not give in to tempting treats
which do not give my body anything
but a temporary fix

After I go hug a tree I think I'll dance to this to wake up my Muse as I can hear her snoring.

Keeping it short today. How is your journey going through April's #AtoZChallenge, #NaPoWriMo, Or are you participating in #CampNaNo2019 instead?



  1. The unsaid truth of menopause.Sailing in the same boat.Today, I felt as if my joints will give away. Your poem rings home. :)

  2. I have a space like that, too, where things simply cease to exist. For me, it's the table directly behind my laptop! Thanks for sharing and being so candid.
    Operation Awesome. Our A to Z 2019 theme is the writing journey.
