PAIN

PLEASE Go Away!

Pain

I had two more shots in my back yesterday

They were supposed to make my pain go away

Instead, I’m in more pain than before

I yelp when I stand and walk across the floor

Pain

I can’t sleep

I don’t want to eat

I hurt from the top of my head

To the bottoms of my feet

Pain

The doctors know what’s wrong with me

Why isn’t the treatment working effectively?

I’m frustrated with all the pills and shots

I just want the pain to stop

Pain

I’ve been told I have a different body chemistry

What works for others may not work for me.

They’ve tried almost everything on the shelf

I think it’s time they try something else

Pain

You put a crimp in my creativity

No writing, drawing, painting, or jewelry

Can be crafted when you are around

And you have my body gagged and bound

Pain

Leave me in peace I politely say

I’m all by myself with the dogs all day

I don’t have anyone to help me

So, please, release me and leave me be

My husband and I began rescuing dogs over 20 years ago. They are our furry family and we do everything we can to help fill their lives with love, health, and happiness. We rescue the old, sick, unwanted, damaged, and on death row. Each special soul we save changes us and remains in our hearts long after they’re gone. I am an aspiring indie-author and also create and sell jewelry and metal bookmarks and we have a Go Fund Me campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/tr796d-dog-haven?member=1560512 ) open in hopes of raising money to help pay for their veterinarian expenses.
