There I was just living my life
Having fun, with not a bit of strife.
Then out of nowhere, from the blue
You decided to join in my life too,
You crept up from behind and hit me hard,
I didn’t know my life would be so marred.
First came the fatigue and then the pain,
The fog rose up and filled my brain.
The nights were filled with lack of sleep
My mind wandered shallow, then into the deep.
The unfairness of it made me sigh
And although I tried not to, I cried and cried.
I asked you often ‘ why did you chose me?’
But you gave no reason that I can see.
‘How are you Lizzie?’ people stopped to say.
Fine I replied, then walked away.
When deep inside I wanted to scream
The pain is strong, the aching mean,
My body is tired, my mind is too
Walking through treacle is what I do.
Its easier to smile and let them go
Then tell them really what they ought to know.
The fatigue is creeping back up again
And just to walk is so full of pain.
I look alright, I look quite fine
It hard for friends to know whats in my mind.
And when I do get the chance to say
Silence comes and they turn away,
They try to help but don’t understand
I cant explain, it's like sinking in sand.
So don’t get too comfy for I'm going to find
A way to rid you from my life and my mind.
So pack your things and be ready to go
For I am a fighter and I want you to know
That I will not rest until you are on your way
And I have my life back, and I have the say.
You shared my life Fibro and tore it apart.
Go now I'm telling you, there’s no room in my heart.
Leave this instance and don’t turn around,
Whats that you hear, its my feet on the ground
Running for life with the wind in my hair
You are now gone and so are my cares.
So you just keep walking and never come back
There's no room for you here, there's nothing I lack.
I’m standing here with my arms open wide
My old friend, health, and I are about to collide.
