Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Twists and Turns
Some roads have many curves
Slow down or you may swerve
Use caution when driving on ice
Or you may spin once or twice

Figure skaters twist and turn
Their skill takes years to learn
Flowing with beauty and grace
Starting slow then pick up pace

Plumbers clear clogged drains
Using coils until it flows again
Tree roots will block the sewer
Old lines are replaced with newer

Our body has twists and curves
With blood vessels and nerves
Routing to and from the heart
Each having its own little part

Narrowing disc spaces in the spine
Cause pain over periods of time
Injury or twisting the wrong way
Should be evaluated right away

After my junior high health screen
I wore a back brace at age thirteen
For a spinal curve until I was grown
Keeping it stabilized on its own

Years later I found out one day
My spine has curved further away
I will soon be going to a specialist
God will guide me, He knows best

Isaiah 48:17 (NIV)
This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer,
the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your
God, who teaches you what is best for you,
who directs you in the way you should go."
