Battle of Black and Blue

Pain

I live with chronic pain.

It stirs waves of depression that crash over me.

It throws me under currents of anxiety that I cannot bear.

It tears me down with exhaustion and disappointment

feeling trapped inside my own body.

I cry

from the pain

from the frustration

from the exhaustion.

I am trapped and alone.

I try to tell others, and it seems I’m speaking

another language suddenly.

Strange looks

disbelief

“You’re so young…”

But I fight

I fight with knowledge

I fight with passion

I fight with LIFE.

It may hurt

but I’m still alive.

I may be slowed down

but I cannot be STOPPED.
