My Handicap

A tragedy befell me.
I left my body in an attic
And went for some purpose.
I don’t remember
What enticed me to do that.
I returned to receive
A shock of my life.
My body has lost its hairs
And termites came out
Through the holes they made in it.
The cheek bones were up
And wrists looked like twigs.
I froze to see my body
Beginning to rot.
When I began to put on my body
It revealed its pale gums
And mocked all smiles and me.
Today I’m handicapped
With the rottenness
I received from the temptation.
The penalty for abandoning my body
For the trust I had in the warmth of soul.

Satirical but very touching, especially the last few lines.
