There once was a woman who tripped over a shoe.
It caused her pain so she had to decide what to do.
Her feet were now sore
no matter what she wore.
It changed how she walked
and due to her pain how she talked.
“Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!”
She would frequently grouch.
“I want to do more
than just sit on my couch!”
The pain moved up to her knee.
She was losing her glee.
The pain moved to her hip.
She was clinging onto her grip.
Her balance had changed.
She didn’t want to look deranged.
She even walked with a lurch
on her way into church.
“It’s amazing” she thought of how everything’s connected.
“I hurt my foot and so much more is affected”.
Gradually her back
started to feel out of whack.
“That’s enough of this pain!” she did exclaim.
“It’s time for my life to reclaim!”
“But what to do? Oh, I know!
To a massage I should go“.
She began her searching
Which was much better than her lurching.
“Here’s a place with great reviews
Is it the one I should choose?”
“Now I’ll check out their web site
to see if this place is all right“.
“The web site looks thorough”
she said as her brow lost it’s furrow.
“The answers to my questions have been found.
The information is clear and sound“.
“Now an appointment I’ll make.
That was easy – a real piece of cake“.
“Now today is the day
for my pain to go away!”
The massage was simply great
as I’m sure you can relate.
The massage is now done
so she can get back to her fun.
Now others wonder and cluck
that she must be a real lucky duck.
She replied “It wasn’t luck – I had to act
and my friends that is a fact.”
The others responded “We want to feel better too!
Please tell us what we should do.”
She said “Grab your phone. Now don’t be shy.”
With a smile she adds “I know just the guy“.
