My Tube Feeding Poem

My Tube-Feeding Pump



Therese Graf

I am like God; I program the pump.

The pump is a tool

To connect my soul with my body.

My body so weakened by age

Every year a normal loss of muscle

Till what I can do, no longer

Resembles youthful bravado.

Every step today to be planned.



Intuitive force obliterated.

Will wisdom take its place?

Can God decree a faster pace,

A richer fare?

Does free will, or repeating

Affirmations daily, alter nature?



No, bless the tool technology

Offers, and try to make

Each day a building, an artifact

Left behind that others can use.
