Moody Monday (Different)


she became a different person

she looked the same but wasn’t

she loved the same but was not

her own body a stranger

a foreigner to all she knew

different she became in one day

  1. So true! With this illness, we become strangers to ourselves and others. Hopefully we learn to navigate the curveballs and come out a better version of our authentic selves. A work in progress, not perfection!

  2. Beautiful Kim! First I fought it, then tried to control it, then manage it, now I’ve accepted it, it took 20 years but it makes a difference to allow myself to just be my good days and my bad days. Marie Xx

    1. I just past the 20 year mark. I wrote this poem originally after I received my diagnosis. I can’t believe I’ve had fibro for 20+ years… (car accident in 1998.) Yes, I agree. We have our good and bad days, being completely honest with yourself and letting the day be what it will be is so very helpful. Thanks Marie! ❤

    1. Oh my, I will have no alter egos left! I can’t keep a secret. Yes, I am “Furiously Fed Up” but only on FB and there are many of those and I write prose under k.Lynel. Long story… I honestly doubt I’ll show up on google. Lord! Now I’m going to have to look. Thanks, Caz! I’ll google you too!!! 😂🤣😂🤣😂

    1. Thank you Susan! You have been so brave with your new venture… I’ve had many of these poems stuck away. So out they come, a little tweaking, and I’m sharing. I feel like a kindergartner in a high school class but I’ll put that aside and do my best! 😊💜
