My Body

Postby TATT » Sat Jul 07, 2012 12:44 pm

My body is malfunctioning
The central nervous system some will say
My circuit board feels out of sorts
Is everything gone array

My body has a daily fight
With alsorts of different battles
The harder you fight the worse it becomes
I now live my life in shackles.

My body no longer can I trust
To even plan ahead one day
My bones and joints seeped in rust
My energy and brains astray

My body feels like its possessed
With a poltergeist no less
It bangs and crashes around inside
Creating a huge and constant mess

My body is no longer mine
I think that's what I am trying to accept
Unable to live my life as before
Without bitterness and regrets

I feel I've aged thirty years
It has happened overnight
Trapped in a body full of pain
With a brain that forgets my plight

I don't know what life has in store of me
As its so far been quite a ride
I try to stay mentally strong
But in truth I often lay down and hide

I wonder how do others keep going
When life is filled with pain
I admire my fellow cyber friends
They pick me up time and time again

My body is misunderstood
No one knows what's really wrong
Some say it's all in my head
But boy they are sooo wrong

I wonder how long they would last
If we could swap bodies for a week
That would wipe the smirk off there face
Show them how to be meek

I wish I did not moan so much 
I have nothing else to give
I have an illness you can't see
It's really no way to live

Hi what a lovely poem it has lots of bits I can relate to.

In fact I have just been given a mini questionaire to fill in from health care and it asks me how do I learn and remember best??
well the thing is as we all know with fibro fog etc we dont do we so I have left this blank as I dont really know the answer. :yikes:

Take care
