I have Rheumatoid Arthritis a disease many really don’t know
It is harsh, it can be deadly, what a horrifying blow,
And it brings uncertainty, grief and so much loneliness
But we can’t forget about some of our biggest tests,
There’s depression, sorrow and the ongoing misunderstanding
That this is a disease that is so demanding,
Yes, disease I know that may surprise you
It is a very serious condition, this is true,
Pain is a constant and the fatigue just won’t go away
It’s in our lives each and every day,
We strive to make it with all that we’re going through
But many will still ask “What’s wrong with you”,
Life with RA can’t be explained in simple words
So it’s not getting the attention we feel it deserves,
Are we seeking attention, pity or any of this
No, not at all, our lives are not worth the risk,
The bottom line, Rheumatoid Arthritis is a horrendous disease
One that affects us all, more than anyone sees!
