Fibromyalgia Poems

Life Passes By

Life passes by

In the blink of an eye

I try to keep up with it

But there is just no way

Others move on

Taking the next steps

In their careers, their lives

Their relationships too

Stuck in a cycle

That I can’t escape from

I don’t have a social life

It’s unachievable

Pain is my burden

It orders me to rest

It doesn’t leave me alone

Life just seems trivial

I do my best

To achieve smaller goals

Like getting out of bed

Or out of the house

I have to limit

So I don’t push myself

As the moment I do

Life slips further away

I am stronger

With this chronic illness

I see the light more clearly

And I can still smile
