Death March

Out in the thickets 
Time stands alone 
Limping around 
Minute by minute 
Not hearing a sound 

But a melodic siren within 
Off pitch and piercing 

Hold back the pain 
No longer 

March on it screams 
March on 

Let the beast devour my flesh 
And allow me to 
March on



* How my body feels after stepping my physical therapy up a     notch

It did sound very painful, but you will reap the benefits in time, and I hope for you this time comes quickly:) Amitiés

No pain...no gain. :) At least that's what they say, but I never believed them. This one did hurt my friend, here's hoping that the physical therapy does trick and hurries up in the process.

Dr. Vaso's fix is only temporary and the after effects will leave you feeling like you've been beaten by another beast. sorry, doctor... Seriously, Tim, endurance is what you need to think of, and the good it will do in the long run. Then you march on as long as you like.
