NaPoWriMo 2015: Day 23


You can't escape it however you deny it
The connection is there, sure as anxiety attacks and phobias
Stress takes its toll and the body gives way
The dying woman holds on for one week more
Just to see her son one final time
The mind, eaten up by jealousy
Riddles the body with crippling illness
Curious that we don't think to use this connection
For our own benefit:
When the mind is at peace the body follows
And the old saying, 'It's all in the mind'
Is truer, perhaps, than we know.
