Waste Not Movement–Do What You Can While You Can

If I keep my eyes on GOD, I won’t trip over my own feet.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭25:15‬ ‭MSG

imageWaste not walking
While you can
Even if you need a walker,
A cane, a hand
Waste not walking
Outdoors, indoors
A few steps here
A few steps there
Especially if you are going nowhere
Even if you forget
Why you rose to walk from this room
To that
Waste not movement
Don’t sit too long
Move while you can, upright
Posture conscious, eyes open
Waste not walking if you can
For there are many who cannot
And if you number in that span,
Move your arms, your hands,
Don’t just simply sit or lie
Waste not the chance to move
What ever body part you can
Blink your eyes, wiggle your ears
Waste not motion while you can
Even if you need a hand.
And with each effort sing a tune
Of gratitude.
