Theme: Bed


Loss of dignity,
Loss of privacy
When you are
And confined
To your bed.
24/7 nursing
You need for
Being washed,
Clothed and fed.

(I wrote this after hearing about my paternal aunt's leg injury that needed major surgery. She's now bedridden. It will take a long time for her to recover and perhaps in the future, she may be able to move using a cane/stick or a walker.)
