My hands are so cold

My limbs are so weak

It’s time to be bold

For the future looks bleak

 

Muscles ache and burn

Words no longer flow

How do I forget

I can feel so low?

 

The body’s so sluggish

I must scream and shout

It all makes me wonder

What life’s all about?

 

optogenetics

 

Glands are so swollen

The throat is so sore

I break down in tears

I can’t bear much more

 

At night so depressed

Feeling all alone

Awake in the dark

And sick to the bone

 

Fibromyalgia_pain

 

The pain’s not forever

The illness will go

But not overnight

As recovery is slow

 

I’ll not let it beat me

I’ve grown strong and tough

That’s what is needed

When I’ve had enough

 

Embracing each day

What an awesome task!

At least I’m alive

What more can I ask?
