As seasons change the joints ache

Navigating the labyrinth of invisible pain,

Arthritis weaves its presence, a relentless chain.

Ankles once whole, now bear the scars,

Broken paths, altered gait, and weighty bars.

A dance with discomfort, both day and night,

Every step, a reminder of the fight.

Invisible battles etched on bones and skin,

Struggling to find peace in the chaos within.

Yet within the struggle, resilience takes root,

With every challenge faced, strength takes its route.

Though hidden from view, the impact is real,

Invisible warriors rise, never to yield or kneel.

    Thank you @Debbie516 @frogmorton and @Ellen. My ankles are a bit achy these days because of the weather. I realized that these days nomatter how much pain I am in, I have mastered the art of surviving through it with no one noticing it. We fight silent battles everyday and we can't even explain it to the people who surround us.

    Thank you all for your support 🙏 to each and everyone of us here on the platform.
