Fibromyalgia Poems

Focus on the Positives

This illness has taught me one thing

To focus on the positives in life

It’s the little things that matter

And they can make you happy

It has changed my perspective

Some things I used to rely on

Don’t matter anymore

I am more at peace with myself

I am proud of the smallest achievement

From getting out of bed

To fulfilling a to do list

Or going out socially after a long day

I know I have to rest more

But when I’m out I waste no time

I praise myself for everything

Because life is just too short

I have learned to appreciate life

Appreciate every precious moment

Appreciate I am still breathing

And that I can still smile

Life goes by so quickly

There’s no time to worry

I try to live in the now

The future is the future for a reason
