Chronic Pain

a fighter’s poem

Chronic Pain,
Your tenacity strikes fear even in the most stoic of warriors.

Fear of standing
Fear of moving
Ever dreadful of the stab that accompanies the simplest of tasks.

Aches keep me awake nights
Trying to find the sweet spot
Hoping for just a few moments of comfortable rest.
