Yoga Heals Vet


(This poem is inspired by a true story)

I was a disabled Vet

Doctors told me I'd never walk normally again

Chronic back and knee pain

Made me unable to work out like I used to

For fifteen years, I suffered in this living hell

I ate too much and gained a lot of weight

Then I discovered yoga

Many teachers turned me away

But one believed in me even though he did not

Know me - I fell many times

I just got back up and tried again

By persistance and perseverance, I gained back

My mobility and lost a hundred forty pounds

Best of all, I can now walk as well as run!
