I have managed to collect a variety of poetry written by those suffering with ME/CFS as well as other Chronic Illnesses from all over the world.
CFS or whatever you are…….
By Elizabeth Wenzler
When I look in the mirror, what do I see?
A faded worn out image of me…
Physically present, but not quite here,
A life that could become permanent I fear……..
In my dreams I’m someone else,
Full of life “my old self”
I see myself in you, in others,
While I’m just here held under covers…
The simple things I want to achieve,
Others complete with the greatest of ease…….
If taking a pill would make it go away,
Do you not think I would do it today?!
I’m not lazy, I’m not “just tired”
This is not in my mind, It is not conspired!
Do I have the strength to make it out?
There are always days I have my doubts….
But I won’t sign my life away…
To hell and back, I won’t stay!
To never give up, To never look back..
This is my life to live,
I WILL find the right track!
