This is a poem that God gave me, I shared it with my friends at angelhugsministry.com and they've encouraged me to continue to allow God to work in my life, whether it be a poem or helping someone in need. I go through the same things as everyone else, just remembe prayer works and altho we see only part, in eternity we will see all. Here's my poem, hope you enjoy.
You Say Its Hard To See
You say its hard to see my hurts because there is nothing you can see. No cast, no bruise, no bandages on me. Let me share with you the secrets that are within me. I worry of the pain i'll have when i do awake, I wake up to the pain, my muscles or a headache. My fears are rooted deep down in my soul, Will I be able to get through all this as it takes its toll? Fibromyalgia, what a crazy name, rarely even heard of it, much less speak the name! Stay positive, eat the recommended foods, and take the right dose, Try to stay focused on the things that mean the most. What? I asked did i do to bring this on? They really cannot tell me, just my muscles are a time bomb. Wishing that I had done more, now that I have to be careful what I do, What will set it off? Cleaning, playing catch with the ball, or going to the zoo? I hurt in my shoulders, my back, my legs, my neck, I feel like a hypocondriac because I am just a wreck. My family can't understand, they can't see the pain, but they try. They know its gotten really bad when I go to my room and cry. I'm not looking for sympathy or someone to say 'poor you', Just trying to help others understand and trying to help get you through. Somedays arent so bad, you almost think that your okay, You'll probably over do it and take advantage of the day. And you will worry about tomorrow if you know you've over done, But the Word says not to worry about tomorrow as today has enough worries of its own. So enjoy the good days as if they'll never end, Toss the ball, give lots of hugs, love your family and friends. I'll end this poem now as my fingers are going numb, Not all of them, just the middle two and my thumb. Pain, sadness, hopelessness, anger, frustrations, confusion and fear are all a part of this. And yes, sometimes just feeling blue. This is not all of the the symptoms, only a part of what fibro sufferers go through. So love them with the love of God and do your best to do your part, Because every little bit of help and prayers will so touch our hearts. Trust in God and lay all your troubles at the alter, I promise as God promises, He will see you through. Life is short. Pray hard. Penny SimpsonView Thread
