I’ve been doing too much, and I’ve been going for too long
I forget, when I’m feeling good, that I’m not your normal healthy person
I forget, in the midst of my day to day life, that if I over do I will pay dearly
I forget, in my arrogance, that I do not own my body. But that the monster inside me does
So today I’m paying for it
All these symptoms and a few more
So I’ve looked in the mirror and told myself.
How stupid were you
I will rest today
I will nurture myself
And I will try to be kind
I hope I will at lest be over the pain by tomorrow, the fatigue I can push past.
But the pain, it’s soul destroying
Well it is today
