Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.


All effort required

To move legs

Weighted with cement…

The thick cloud

Of fatigue

Threatens to overwhelm…

Arms ever burdened

Bound with ties

Unseen by human eyes…

The sluggish response

Of the smallest reaction

As if moving in slow motion…

While flesh is pierced

It is stabbed and set fire

By hidden foes…

One must draw

From deep within

To fight the hidden monster…

To coax the body

Through the day

While fighting the overwhelming heaviness…
