Keeping It Real

Keeping it real means
I recognize my losses
And concede my pain.

Keeping it real means
I acknowledge my limits
While I set new goals.

Keeping it real means
I face what’s ahead of me
Clearly, but with hope.

Hi Judy,
Good post, thankas dfor sharing and thanks for reminding me that I can still set goals despite being handicapped.

Herrad, sometimes I write these haikus to remind myself of what I should remember. There are so many other reminders in my day of what I can't do that it's good to remember that, yes, I still can accomplish things. Thank you for your wonderful feedback.
