FYBROMYALGIA

FYBROMYALGIA

A CONDITION THAT CAUSES INCREASED PAIN
PEOPLE LOOK AND THINK YOUR INSANE
THIS CERTAINLY IS NOT THE CASE
THE BODY HURTS FROM FOOT TO FACE

ITS SO INTENSE YOU CANNOT FUNCTION RIGHT
ALL YOUR MUSCLES IN THE BODY FEEL SO TIGHT
THE PAIN REALLY IS INTENSE
THE REASONS WHY MAKE NO SENSE

IT’S A NEW CONDITION NOT MUCH IS KNOWN
PAIN THAT YOUR IN JUST CANT BE SHOWN
IN THE MORNING YOU MAY FEEL GREAT
BUT BY MIDDAY YOU MAY BE IN A STATE

IT INCAPACITATES YOU SO MUCH
FROM GENERAL CHORES TO PAINFUL TO TOUCH
YOUR JOINTS AND MUSCLES FEEL SO TIGHT
ITS HARD TO REMAIN UPBEAT AND BRIGHT

A BIT LIKE ARTHRITIS BUT THERE IS NO REASON
CAN’T EVEN SAY IT IS THE SEASON
THE CURE SO FAR HAS NOT BEEN FOUND
ITS JUST THE DRUGS THAT KEEP YOU SOUND

THE LEGS HURT SO MUCH WHEN YOU STAND
THE MUSCLES ARE TIGHT LIKE AN ELASTIC BAND
THE ARMS AND NECK FEELING SO TIGHT
THE BODY HURTS DAY AND NIGHT

HOPEFULLY ONE DAY A CURE WILL BE FOUND
THEY WE CAN WALK AROUND AND AROUND
WITHOUT THE PAIN BEING THEIR ALL THE TIME
WIITHOUT THE DRUGS KEEPING US FINE

SO, IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH THIS CONDITION
UNDERSTAND FOR THEM EVERYDAYS A MISION
HELP THEM UP AND DO THE ESSENTIALS 
GIVING SUPPORT IT IS INSTRUMENTAL

IT’S AN INTERNAL PAIN NOT JUST IN THE HEAD
IT’S THE NERVES THAT REALLY HURT INSTEAD
WITHOUT YOUR HELP THEY WILL JUST CRUMBLE
A LOT I KNOW WONT EVEN GRUMBLE

    I had a friend with this condition. Her husband gave her messages every day, and then he died. I hope somehow one of her children helps her. Bless you for writing about it.
