I wake up in agony
and dont know why
has my body really given up on me
why should i try?
everyday there is new pain in my stomach and my chest
im becoming me less and less
im no longer younge
far from the sixteen year old girl i once was
now im twenty seven and frail and old
you may laugh at that i can see
but im riddled with arthiritis you see
i didnt ask for the pain
but i still wake up and smile
fore dwelling is just not my style.
