Betrayal of body,
Betrayal of mind,
Shut down,
Reboot and continue,
I go on,
Immune system betrayal,
Alone and tired,
Of fighting a battle,
No one understands,
The body wins,
Lost in pity,
I reboot my feelings,
Immune system gone haywire,
Be damned, I will win,
And go on forgetting to be different,
Forgetting the pain, 
Forgetting that others, 
Live free of pain,smile and forget,
I will feel well again if only for a moment,
Lost in joy and interactions with people,
Positive, as I live free in denial,
It works all the same,
I'm happy to be me.
