Many centuries ago a friend created a website where she put up some of my poems/writings. :) Now if I could figure out a way to redo it since I was only 41 when it was done and I am now 56. Lol.
Here is one of the poems:
You Are Not Alone
You sit all alone, cursing the night
Heart wrenching cries on wings take flight
Pain overwhelms and insomnia moves in
The odds stack against you, it’s a fight you can’t win.
People don’t understand you, friends move on
Marriages crumble, lives come undone.
You mourn the life that you once had
Looking back, you can’t help but feel sad.
You’re not alone though, I want you to know.
I hear your voices everywhere I go.
I know how you feel, I live with this too.
So take my hand, I am here for you.
I’ll be there when you need to vent, cry, yell or scream
And I’ll also be there as you reach for your dreams.
Fighting an invisible illness is not something I would wish on you
But bring us all together, we will see each other through!
Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Myofascial Pain and more
Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Gulf War.
“Syndromes”, They say. “The cause is unknown.”
Then they give you a pill and send you home.
Illnesses that affect 12-15 million Americans alone
Women, Men, and children! Something needs to be done.
I won’t take this lying down anymore.
We need research if we are to find a cure.
Not only research but more education is needed
Doctors need to know how we should be treated.
It’s all in your head they often will say
I’ll gladly let them live in my shoes for a day.
So come take my hand as we fight the good fight
Advocating for awareness for what we know is right.
You’re not alone my friend, I give you my word.
I won’t stop until I know your voices are heard!
