This morning I was able to watch the sun rise,
I am grateful for every day I open my eyes,
There are so many things that make my life great.
But days like today, I accept my fate.

It’s hard to not feel alone, when no-one can understand,
Why it hurts so much, to just hold my hand.
It hurts so much when I cannot even handle a touch,
Especially from those that I love so much.

I can’t remember a day that I didn’t experience pain,
Ill try any treatment suggested but I know its in vain.
There is no cure, how can I make that clear?
It is a chronic illness, one that will always be there.

Its not just my physical body that takes the toll,
But anxiety and depression also play a role.
Too many days, I will smile and lie,
And not tell you that I just want to cry

Its not all bad, pain has taught me a lot.
A true appreciation of all the things that Ive got.
I would not be the person I am today,
Without the people who support me all the way.
