Musings From A Musical Mind

Adam’s Rib

Adam and EveI read that God took something from the man

carefully fashioned it

and created the woman

I don’t often think much about it

but lately I’ve begun to wonder

do I have an extra one?

You know – that extra rib

Is it this one that gives me trouble

throws off my normal alignment?

Simple movements

that are not so simple

now that I am reaching

a certain age

A back that used to work for me

not against me

even with strenuous movements

one that would bounce back after exercise

But alas, it is not so

I have to blame that rib

that extra one

the one Adam gave me

It appears I’m stuck with it

a little pain

no gain

but maybe much is to be gained after all

For it is in the pain

and restriction

that cause me to pause

reflect

and appreciate the times

when everything works

just as it should

When my ribs don’t hurt when I breathe

when I can turn over in bed

without pain

and reach down for things without a sharp stabbing

But for now

I will stumble along

with my extra rib

that rib from Adam

and keep doing it

in spite of that hinderance

that certain encumbrance

the unwanted rib

I will do it

by trimming down

moving more

eating less

and finding a new normal

and in time

I will adjust

extra rib and all

Hey Adam!

Thanks ever so much

you shouldn’t have

I mean that.

Can I give it back?

Today good for you?

Tomorrow?

Oh I get it

without that extra little “gift”

I would not be here

I guess it stays

it is my reminder

my visual

and my choice

And I choose to work through it

and not take anything for granted

when everything works so well!
