So many things can handicap,

and often they will overlap.

Because the body and the mind

are so intricately entwined.


Quite interestingly the brain

is where we process all our pain.

So though the damage is elsewhere,

it’s brains that manage this affair.


Thus, if you’ve got a broken bone,

the fuss is not from there alone.

You must have heard it often said,

the thrust of pain is from your head.


The way you think upon a day

determines if the pain will stay.

If in your mind you do your best,

sometimes the pain is laid to rest.


Those who practice meditation

suffer less with dubitation.

For they control their thought process,

and therefore all their stress is less.


Thus enabling them to think,

making pain levels start to sink.

Others might want to pop some pills

to fight away their pain and ills.


But drawbacks of medication

can lead to more debilitation.

So if you do avoid that path,

you won’t accrue the aftermath.


Even the most minute mishap

can end up as a handicap.

You need to have an attitude

that leaves you with some latitude.
