There's so many illness out in this world
and some sound pretty absurd.
Fibromyalgia is certainly no joke.
So be careful please, if you decide to poke.
It's not all in my head,
that's my my great doctor said.
It's Fibromyalgia, it's hard to pronounce,
and yes, I know it hurts you to bounce.
It hurts to stand, it hurts to sit.
Sometimes it even hurts to spit.
It hurts to laugh, it hurts to cry.
But at least I have a reason why.
'Cause when push comes to shove
you taste what you're made of.
You might bend til you break
'cause it's all you can take.
On your knees you look up
decide you've had enough.
You get mad.
You get strong.
Wipe your hands
shake it off.
Then you stand.
