Fibro Warrior

My limbs burn with pain
My head feels heavy
The hue of melancholy
Is upon me  
As I bemoan my fate
Of continuously fighting
This foe
Who steals away
My strength, my energy
What moral right
Does this disease
Have to take
Away my life
And bring such strife
I do not know
I take back
My inner strength
Putting unknown
Untapped energy
Back into
My core
For I know that
I will not surrender
To melancholy
I will fight
With everything I am
To appear normal again
To continue living my life
To the fullest
To be happy
To achieve
My goals
Despite the pain
For I am
A warrior at heart
This battle I shall win
No matter the time
To survive another day
Without pain.
With energy to spare.

  1. Amen! Don't give up. You are in my prayers.

  2. You truly have a warrior spirit..I'm with Belva!

  3. Sheilagh, I'm walking with you, holding your hand...just keep moving, writing, thinking, acting...send you much Energy, Love <3 xx

  4. Fighting back for one's good. It is always called for. Great write Sheilagh!


  5. Chronic pain is a terrible way to live. Alternative medicine or living in sunshine might be an answer. You write poetry so well Sheilagh . I
    always enjoy your poems.

  6. some days are better than others and you learn to live with it. Sunshine and some warmth without humidity does help make you feel a little better. I've tried lots of things unfortunately there's been no cure only bouts of less pain as I said you live with it. The less pain days and tiredness days are the good days.
    Thanks for your compliments on my poetry, Rallentanda
