Seated Women

The seated women watch, that is all they can do.

They watch as the others glide across the floor effortlessly, as they are bound to a seat.

Their feet tingle with desire to get up and join, but they are restricted by their own

weakened bodies.

How? They all wonder.

How can all their emotion, their want, their passion be completely cut off by an

uncontrollable weakness.

They all consider giving up, but it is not in their nature.

They are too overcome with drive.

And slowly, they fight, despite feeling like they can hardly move.

They fight inside and out.

They know they can only rid themselves of the panic and frustration if they defeat the

enemy they created.

They know the day will come, but until then, they remain watching.
