Things I Struggle With

What is something you struggle with? What battles are you fighting that most people know nothing about? What’s something about you or your life that makes you feel weird, or different, or isolated?


I decided to answer today’s prompt with a poem. Please be forgiving as I am new at writing poetry.

I have thought of things that are daily struggles for me that most people would not know about. You cannot see chronic illness or chronic pain in most cases. As I look normal, most people have no idea of what I endure to get through the days, weeks, and years.


I Struggle With

Getting up in morning
Falling asleep at night
Sitting for more than half an hour
Walking more than a mile.
Tolerating the heat
Putting up with the cold
Enduring the wind, rain, fog, snow.
Washing dishes
Changing the sheets
Vacuuming floors
Doing laundry.
Now I have listed some
Of the things I struggle
With on typical days.

Tell me, what are your day-to-day struggles?

Until later,


Gentle hugs
