Swollen joints keep you in misery
And there is an increase in IgE
Red rashes cover your body
You are a medical mystery
And all you want to do is flee
Run away from this body that has failed you
Exchange it for something new.
Migraines, red patches, and back aches
Trying to get better with whatever it takes
Wishing to go back and rewind time
So I can make stress disappear and make everything fine.
Waking up each day feeling tired
Hoping that I won't get fired
Unable to lift your child
Everyone thinks it's mild
But your body is fighting an inner war
Something that you just can't take anymore
It's a silent disease that's eating you up
A constant battle that just won't stop.
Scratching, itching, and just can't walk
Trying to be strong as a rock
Family & friends don't understand
But this is the ongoing fight that I have to withstand.
