WHAT DO I DO !! by Shelly Edwards


What do I do when my body every day, is in so much pain?
What can I do? But cope, as I have done, over and over again
When the tablets I take, aren’t taking my pain away
What do I do,? I just smile and say
‘Maybe they will find something to help me , One day’

What should I do? When my legs give way
Sit down!! I can hear you say
But when I sit down , I then can’t get up!!
What to do ? should I stay in bed
Then that’s it! I might as well be dead!!

What should I do?, When I start to trip or fall
Should I pray that something, Will break my fall
Or just close my eyes , and say ‘what the heck’
And Just hope & pray , I don’t break my neck !!!

What should I do when somebody knocks!!
Run to the Door , Now that would be a shock!!!
I wish I could run, But I can hardly walk
I get to the door Is somebody there!?
No .I took too long !!They’ve disappeared, into thin air!!

What should I do when I can’t sleep
I know what people say ! That I should count sheep
Why sheep? why not pigs,cows, or ducks, it’s only fair
I wonder who made that rule , do I really care ?

What do I do , when I need to go out anywhere
I take hours to get ready, to dress, make up, do my hair
Then just as I am about to go!!
I’m tired & in so much pain , who cares if I don’t show!!
No-one will miss me if I’m not there,
Anyway, I’d rather be at home, sitting in my chair….

I’m sorry if this poem seems rather bleak!!
I’m not always like this , feeling so weak
This is just a part of me , that I needed to share
To anyone who’d listen , and anyone who would care

I care , I always will…I love it when I can make someone smile .
Because It’s good for me to stop and chat , just for a while…..
