Chronic pain: A lifetime ago

Every moment of pain and suffering seems like a lifetime. And it seems like I have been this way for a lifetime.

It Took It took, took and took From me. But it never ever took Me It tried, With fire raging; skin and bone. It tried, with darkness; deep and alone. It took, took and took From me. But it never ever took Me It tired (2) (1).png

A lifetime ago

I got sick and I never got better.

A lifetime ago

 I had pain that never went away

A lifetime ago

I struggled to work when I couldn’t

A lifetime ago

I got depressed 

A lifetime ago

I tried to die

A lifetime ago

I kept working and got sicker

A lifetime ago

I changed my job and still struggled.

A lifetime ago

I got worse

A lifetime ago

I felt like a failure

A lifetime ago

I felt worthless

A lifetime ago

I became disabled

A lifetime

Of survival
