Poem: Physical battles may seem impossible
When the odds are stacked against you
My illness gawks and whispers about me
Heavy artillery I’m not equipped to fight
It tells me, “ the fight is already won”
“No matter how hard you try,
I’ll always be here whispering in your ear”
“I am you” it says
“You are pain”
My response?
Fuck off...
