Symptom*

 

 My body had made a decision  
Never thinking to talk to me first.  
Preferring to dodge more derision,  
Than be told the truth this is the worst.  

Every week a new pain is risen  
Like a faith I can never deny.  
My life & Fate in a collision  
With a subtle reminder to die.  

Itís got to be just one more symptom  
In another failed try to be well,  
By my mindís judgmental addictum  
In my private worldís singular Hell.
