Why must it be so severe?
Why must it be so limiting?
Why does it make my actions feel so insignificant?
Why won’t it allow me to be who I need to be for those I love?
Why can I not escape it no matter how hard I try?
Why do I feel like I am drowning underneath its weight?
Why are my screams not loud enough and the streams of my tears not flowing strong enough to disrupt the current of its electrical shocks?
Why must my only resolve against its constant battle wages be to lie down and give up or cringe at the feeling of bone upon bone?
Why must it taunt me with dreams of the sun over the horizon, meanwhile, it has a storm lurking behind the clouds?
Pain, why do you plague me, so?
