‘You’ve Got This’ a Poem by Me

My body was stifled,
My mind was crippled,
I felt I’d aged in many ways.
I’d lost control,
Fell in to a deep, dark hole,
I tried my best to remain brave.

My life crumbled,
When I spoke I bumbled,
My body ached with every breath.
I wanted it to stop,
I didn’t know who I was,
People said it was all in my head.

I cried and I screamed,
I wished and I dreamed,
About the life my health took away.
I mourned and I bargained,
But then I realised I was determined,
To claw back my stolen parade.

I began digging and shouting,
Sure, I had times of doubting,
But I began to unearth the pieces.
See, the jigsaw of me,
Why I felt so terribly,
Needed perseverance in putting together the reasons.

Piece by piece, I discovered another part,
And as I worked on each,
It restored a part of my heart.
I started to see this light of hope,
Although at times it was dimmed again,
When I hit a new low.

But with every wall I came up against,
I smash on through,
And reclaimed control over my health,
Which you can do, too.

It was perseverance, determination and will power that drove,
And now I am my own health advocate living the life I always deserved to own.

See, you can’t give up the fight you know you ought to win,
So don’t stop fighting for answers,
You’ve got this, keep swimming.
