Oh ! Me Oh! My

Oh me, oh my, life stinks but I don’t know why.

It’s dull, tired and really sad but I pretend alls not so bad.

Now I have so much enforced leisure, my job was hard but I had its measure.

Friends and acquaintances I had many, now my absence has whittled them down

to hardly any.

The ones that stayed are the ones to treasure but the loss of others

Has cut me deep. It hurt me so, at first I used to weep.

It makes me feel my time was wasted on those who used me, always to their side I hasted.

To help them and support them I was willing they soon forgot and yes, the pain is killing.

Be bright and cheerful that’s the ticket, despair is like a scab it will not heal if you pick it.

So why do I sit and wonder where  my life has gone?

Snap out of it, like you’re told get out there put on the slap and be strong.

That is easy to say and easy to pretend but it does not change, that what you’ve broke will never mend.

Don’t get me wrong I am strong; I make the effort every day and all day long

I do my part to cover up my fears I hide my feelings and my tears.

This does not help in fact it hinders. No one wants to know the depths of despair.

They say they will help but when you’re miserable they don’t want to know.

They just don’t care

    Wow, this is sad, and I know exactly what you mean. I’m enjoying reading your early stuff. 🙂 Back when you were a newbie like I am.

      I was very low when I started the blog. I was not long out of hospital, I had been in for just over a month. I had broken my back and I had to have three operations.Hopefully I had written out all my fear and anger now. I hope the real me is coming through now. 🙂

        Blogging is very healing. I had back surgery a few years ago. It takes a long time to recover, doesn’t it? How did you break your back (OUCH!)?

        Yes it takes a good long while, four years down the I am still recovering. How, I got up at 4.30am to get a drink of water. Passed out fell back, broke my back on the breakfast bar then down onto the slate tiled floor. Ambulance, ER then the surgeons got excited as they needed to rebuild my shattered back. They couldn’t believe it happened in the kitchen, thought I’d come off of a motor bike or a horse!

        Oh my. That is incredible that you could shatter your back like that. Oh! Scary! I ruptured a disc by sneezing. Sneezing!! It was in a bad place, dislocated some nerves, mega pain to my leg, eventual numbness. Trouble walking, surgery, pain, can’t sit for long. Being in the car is horribly painful. I might have permanent nerve damage. Yours sounds worse, though. Hugs and healing! Brenda

        Pain is subjective and everyone’s pain is bad for them. I am still recovering though I have got rid of the walking stick, returned my disabled parking badge I am still in pain ( constant pain) I find it hard to stay sitting, standing or lying for too long, if I move in my sleep the pain wakes me. I now have a curved back but thank to good physios, gym trainers and Pilates trainer I am standing as straight as poss and walking as much as I can ( everyday) I have lost feeling around my hips and the top of my right leg due to nerve damage.
        I am sorry you have pain and nerve damage I sympathize with you !! Hugs xxxxx

        Yes Lets hope we have a little smooth going for a while! It often seems to me that life just seems to level out and then BOOM! Someone or something decides to put a metaphoric oar in!! 😉 xxxxxxxxx

        Well, the water embraces the oar and then lets it go without another thought of it, and it leaves not a trace once the ripples settle. We can try to be the water.

        Well, now you have thought of it. Almost no idea is truly original. 🙂
