Melissa’s World

Each day my room’s eternally
A prison and infirmary
It’s not a choice that’s up to me
Relentlessly

I miss my family, lost my friends
The list of losses never ends
My body breaks, my spirit bends
Relentlessly

I’ve tried it all, took every test
I suffered as I gave my best
I cannot sleep, my mind won’t rest
Relentlessly

Melissa, Stanwood, WA
