Chronic is what they said to me,
This is how your life will be.
A never ending cycle of pain,
Over and over, time and again.

You have to learn to live with it,
You’ve been told you must stay fit.
It rose from out of nowhere,
Your days now filled with deep despair.

You try so many different things,
Praying for the cure they'll bring.
But chronic is what they said to me,
Find a way to set it free.

Grieve for all what this has cost,
Mourn for all what you have lost.
Give yourself some absolution,
Go and find a better solution.

One that helps you manage and cope,
One that gives you new found hope.
Reach out to our Lord and Savior,
Trust that God will give you favor.

I may not be where I want to be,
but this disease is not all of me.
It’s only a fraction of the whole,
It’s strengthened body, mind and soul,

and set my mind completely free,
To be the best, of the rest of me
