LISTEN TO ME
I’ve been trying to tell you what’s it’s like to be me;
But I’m having trouble getting you to listen to me.
It’s really important that the world knows;
The things that this illness never shows.
A wolf attacks n the form of a disease;
This is why you should listen to me.
I didn’t ask for this life or this illness
But you should understand its prevalent realness
It could attack you just like it did me
You need to understand my harsh reality.
Different things in life will make you feel blue;
But this thing I go through could happen to you.
Why can’t you understand, why can’t you see?
Why won’t you take the time to listen to me?
You don’t have lupus so you may not care;
But the commonality of this illness isn’t rare!
I need you to understand this isn’t a good thing.
Not a life you want or a hardship you need.
Check early for symptoms that may show;
And show support so that the world can know.
Don’t feel sorry for me because this may one day be you;
Just know what I say is so very true.
This monster inside is not something you can see;
So when I talk about lupus, please listen to me.
