Poetry Month, Day 7: Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia

When I awaken, I am tired
I push myself through the day
As through cold molasses,
Continuing tired
Dragging leaden bones and an occasionally weary spirit
There are aches and pains
There is fog in my head
There is a sense of futility
But I know I will rebound.
Just…
Not
Today.
Let me get to bedtime
Unbroken
And rise again,
Weary tomorrow.
