Sickness Poem

This poem basically tells the story. I have been to 4 different sets of doctors and now I'm going to my 5th. They don't really know what's wrong with me, but thats okay. I know they will. That is my one hope. Thanks to all my friends and my family for being there for me. I LOVE YOU GUYS!

My Pain

© Sami Chester
You try to understand
But I don't want you to
I don't think you can comprehend
The pain that I go through.

I never get to sleep
Because I cry all night
The doctors don't know what it is
Or what's wrong with my sight.

The pain's almost unbearable
Like a thousand stabbing knives
And when my skin gets wet
My body's covered in hives.

I wish that I could show you
How it hurts to breathe or move
But I know that it's not possible
So this I cannot prove.

The touch of skin or fabric
I want to scream out loud
But I know I won't do so
Cause the sound drowns in the crowd.

What's that you say
I can't hear you
Speak up please
It's my hearing too.

My muscles freeze
My joints lock
I am scared
I cannot walk.

I lay in bed
Do nothing all day
My mom brings my food up
On a tray.

I chew my food
My mouth needs to soak
I sip my water
I start to choke.

I'm scared to think
What happens next
Cause the situation
Is too complex.

  • Your poem touched me, after reading this you have been in my prayers. It's almost been nine months that I've been sick, in and out of hospitals my whole eighth grade year. Everyday in constant pain not one moment without it taking over my body. My doctors know some things wrong and others it's still taking them a while to figure out. I have no cure, but I pray to God to cure you. Have faith in the Lord because everything that happens in life is not always good but God does not make you go through suffering without a reason.
