No More Strength by Melanie Woodruff

I find strength in knowing that I'm not alone in this treacherous journey with Fibromyalgia. I love venting my feelings through poetry and I love even more when others do as well. I came across this poem very soon after I was diagnosed and it touched my heart and it made me cry as most things do these days.


by Melanie Woodruff

I’m so tired of fighting this every day
This pain is too much to endure
Please don’t let me pull away
Please don’t let me fade
I’ve no more strength
No more tears
No energy
And life
Trying to breathe
To hold onto something
Blindly reaching for a hand
Steadfast, solid letting me be me
The darkness clears, I see you there
And although the pain remains, I’m not alone.
