Oh Woe, Oh Why?

Why must I suffer acne still?
What trick of fate, whose wily will?
I am too far over the hill,
refuse to take a teenage pill,
must be this state of chronic ill.

(A funny ditty for Dark Side Of the Moon’s Whyquain challenge.  I might have taken liberties with the form, but it was fun to write.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Ah…another challenge. I relate to this as well. One more shrug from the doctor who offers only…”these things happen when you get older” or the dreaded one word explanation – autoimmune.

  2. I was just complaining to my husband a couple of weeks ago how unfair it is that I should have wrinkles and acne at the same time. You’re right that there should be a law. 🙂
