My Body

The body in which I reside

doesn’t feel like a friend of mine

it tries to take over my mind leaving me

feeling vulnerable a lot of the time

my dopamine is being eaten away

and the body is unable to replace

I keep fighting to maintain and remain

and holding on tight like a white knuckle ride

the insecurities I have every day

will I trip fall or be safe

will I eat without missing my mouth

will I speak or will words just tumble out

but there are chinks of light rays

sometimes they linger and stay

and I’m thankful that I can see

beauty in amongst the grey.
