Graves in my skin  by Linda {Linny} V. Larson

I feel it in my fingers,

I feel it in my toes.

The pain that’s all around me

and so the feelings grow

It’s written on the wind

It’s everywhere I go

And though you cannot see it

I just want you to know

My mind didn’t do it

It’s the way I feel

I know you can’t see it

It doesn’t let it show

My blood works in

if you can tell by that

I really doubt it ’cause

it’s where I’m at

It has no beginning

it has no end

The futures looking bleak

I wanta let you in

The only way you’ll believe me

is if it’s in YOUR skin!

So come on do your part

lets find a place to start

It won’t go just cause you

think it can

make a difference with one tiny pill

come on come on

lets get real!



and then I’ll know who I am.

    Very nice. We do have to do what we can, to make it scram. Some days it is just hard to get my head around it.
