    Thanks mich. I have to say though, that my poems do not always reflect how I personally am feeling. They are simply poems, though they will reflect all kinds of human feelings and experiences. I use the word “I” very often as a literary device. It makes what you are saying more pointed sometimes. One day, however, I might JUST post my TRUE state, and what my day is like each and every day, and of how I have basically been robbed of my personhood by my wretched disease. The exhaustion that this produces and the TRUE fatigue, whereby I can hardly sit up in bed sometins is exceptionally demoralising. Most people can just post. I can’t. It requires a huge effort. My poems, though, are just that. Poems. I keep making the decision not to post anything personal about myself, because it tends to draw quite judgemental comments from some people. Though then I do sometimes post ppersonal things still. This poem has hope in it. Do I FEEL hope? No, I don’t, except for beyond the grave,which this is really about, because my condition is deteriorating fast. It is hard to deal with. Very hard. But I like to post things with hope in, for the sake of others. I like to think that there is a life beyond, that is better than this. But I don’t know if there is one or not. Probably not.
