While you awaken and lament life

the hours you toil

We lay in bed hoping to be free from perpetual illness

The woes of being we

As you make your way to work wishing for just one more Day in bed

We who are perpetually sick

Wish nausea, aches, pain and lethargy would really

Reside only in our heads

You sit by your window and daydream of the Day

When you too can stay in bed and perhaps have a lazy Day

We who are perpetually sick wish for just one moment

We could climb out of bed

And make our way, on steady limbs

Pain-free, illness free, to just the bathroom door

Yes, we may at times give the appearance of great health

But our will and bodies are constantly warring

Medication controlled illness allows for just

So much and no more

Then we are back to being perpetually we

We hear the comments and at times they rankle

You could go if you really wanted.

It's mind over matter

Just get out of bed and you will see

You will feel much better if you just

The perpetually sick wish you see for just one Day

What it means to be perpetually we.

Residing in the World of the you who are healthy.
