Letting Them Down Again.

Updated: Jun 29, 2020

Foreword: For the last 2 and a half years my life has been plagued with migraines. Potententialy my job is at risk. They start with an aura attack and then a loss of vision, before the bad head. I am often having to miss out on family time, or trips out due to migraines. The most recent, a Christmas trip to the cinema. I was so annoyed and low about it I wrote this.

Letting them down again Feels like all I ever do Consistently persistent Like the cold mid winters rain

Waves of pain again Halting plans we made Odd one out again On this desolate plain

Wind whipping up the dust Unstoppable around my being Needing to fit in again Praying for some healing

Nowhere left to go with this But up I guess It can't go on forever I hope My heads a bit of a mess

Wondering quite often Is this what I've become? Trying to be steadfast Concentration on the run

Regularly irregular It seems my world is now Distant memories of normality Shoot across my bow

I don't know what the future holds Destiny out of my hands Trying to remain positive Not to abandon forever plans

So here I am again Not wanting my trying to be there in vane I'm trying, keep trying Not to let them down again
