Is this Life?



Confusion and pain are my constant friend

annoyance with the inability

to function a day without pain racking my brain

throwing me into a whirlwind that spins me out of control

leaving nothing but perplexity at the state

that I have been frightened into

The immensity of the pain

takes my mind and throws me into

a living hell

from which I see no end.

Knives as sharp as swords

poke and slice me into a writhing

mass of wounded flesh

that tries to reassemble itself into

a semblance of a human being.

My stomach trying to turn itself inside out

as I strive to maintains a cheerful demeanor

and an outward show of moderation.

Anguish refuses to give way to acceptance

and I am drowning in the torture that is my life.

Knowing that there is more for me in life

than the situation in which I find myself.

Yet seeing the life that is thrust upon my mother

I know that even now I am greatly blessed.

Wow....I can feel the passion through your words, well done. I can only pray that if there be truth to your words that relief be near and in sight. Be well

"Knowing that there is more for me in life than the situation in which I find myself." So happy that you included these lines. Believe them.
