There are 5 steps from the stove to the sink,
Almost 15 to the back door I think.
Only 22 steps from the couch to my bed,
But I gotta add 10 for a potty stop instead.


When my ankles or feet are in a flare…
I catch myself counting steps everywhere.
Looking for the shortest distance I can take,
When each step feels like something will break.


I count up and down steps for hips and knees,
But forward steps until I’m in bed home free.
My treasures have changed since RA came around.
Who needs gold when a bed is found?
