No one really knows what it’s like

Tossing and turning in bed every night

Plagued with thoughts that only come when you rest

Purging them from your mind is the ultimate test

It sets the tone for how the next day will be

Ridding yourself of all the negativity

But that’s hard to do when you’re sick like me

When all you want is to be completely healthy

You try to wrap your mind around the inevitability

That you’re stuck with this disease for all time, you see

It’ll cost you things that comes for others so easily
