Patience- A Chronic Illness Poetry Collection

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.

This one is extra special as the artist has turned is poem into the most beautiful and moving song, I have literally listened to this over and over again, it is honest and realistic rendition of how many of us feel

 

Patience

by Ren Gill

It’s alright, It’s okay, I’m feeling brave gonna face this day,

It’s okay, it’s alright, no tears will kiss my cheeks tonight

It’s all good, and I’m just fine, my words ring out like hollow shells ‘

Just slow down, it takes time’… but time moves slow i know this well

 

My heart breaks 1000 times a day…

For every hope that dies anther one takes its place…

 

 

Because… I have the strength of a mountain,

I have the courage of the deep blue sea,

I have the heart of a lion,

The stars burn bright inside of me,

 

And although you test me my god, I stand so proudly – can’t you see…

That I have the strength of a mountain, and I’ll take all you throw at me

 

This world is quite scary, I know that cause I’ve been here for some time,

But all that prepares me, for a day when I can truly shine,

Cause I’ve been quite broke, and picking up fragments of myself,

Ill glue them back together so I can stand on the edge of this world and yell

 

That my heart breaks 1000 times a day…

For every hope that dies anther one takes its place…

Because… I have the strength of a mountain,

I have the courage of the deep blue sea,

I have the heart of a lion,

The stars burn bright inside of me,

 

And although you test me my god, I stand so proudly – can’t you see…

That I have the strength of a mountain, and I’ll take all you throw at me

 

I’ll dust the cobwebs of this sheath, and grasp the sword of my belief,

And in this storm, I will not flinch,.. I will not move,…no not an inch

 

Because… I have the strength of a mountain,

I have the courage of the deep blue sea,

I have the heart of a lion,

The stars burn bright inside of me,

 

And although you test me my God, I stand so proudly – can’t you see…

That I have the strength of a mountain, and I’ll take all you throw at me.
