Alone with my thoughts
Feeling lost and trapped, right here
I’m falling apart

My body betrays
In my small corner, I cry
Tears need to get out.

Let me stay in here
Please just let me self destruct
With anxiety

Don’t want any help
I just want to be alone
Don’t you pull me out!

Writing down my thoughts
I finally understand
Where my pain is now

Body betraying
And muscles do not pay mind
Mind is betraying

My mind is losing
The fight I never wanted
I’m losing the war.

Note: this poem is about my MS-like symptoms I’ve been having. It’s a tad negative because I feel very frustrated and scared right now. However, I am certain those feelings will pass with time.

I am the type of person who needs to vent the negative feelings out into the world. Then I can smile with strength.

Onwards into the battle :)
