Times when I want more than anything else to just feel normal
To talk, to say whatever it is I might like to say
Out loud
Letting myself know that I am OK
Missed out on many a good time owing to this illness
Leaves me constantly gasping for breath
Know something’s up when you can’t see the same things others see
Can’t see the forest for the trees
When a day becomes an obstacle like no other
Scary, debilitating even
To not be able to complete even the simplest of tasks
Can’t remember the last time I got to smile
Even though I believe I was born to smile
