What shall we do today?
I ask my chronic pain,
Do we hurt too much to get out of bed?
Does it hurt too much to stay?
Shuffle to the bathroom,
Joints sore and creaky,
Hot water shower lubes them briefly,
Standing up, knees screaming in pain,
Can we cook or hungry remain?
Sitting at my desk wishing
for telekinetic gifting
Contemplating if thirst is really
Worth the agony of standing,
I am chronic pain, you can not see me,
Sometimes we wish we could make you feel me.
