I Didn't Mean It

I was physically present but my mind wasn’t always there, Trying to find the silver lining but everything seemed so unfair. I knew I could have a seizure but I could never see the shore, My mind lost at sea even for 1 minute, I would wake up so sore. I had every right to give up and just not care, At times it started to feel like I was living a nightmare. I would roar and I felt pain like I had never felt it before, My body went hardcore, looked like I came back from war. I knew life wasn’t a straight line but I never got this memo, I would cry myself to sleep at night but you didn’t know. Unaware of it, I would make a loud whelp, I would get mad at you but you were only trying to help. Having to give up everything I worked for, what a low blow, There would be highs and lows but it wouldn’t always show. I had another seizure… welp, You kept trying to comfort me, I know you just wanted to help. At times I felt hopeless, But most of all… I’ve never stopped hoping less.
