The Farewells of the Chronically Disabled

Day 30, the final day and the prompt is to write a farewell style poem.

The Farewells of the Chronically Disabled

I’ve said farewell to a good nights sleep
I’ve said farewell to friends who I couldn’t keep
I’ve said farewell to nights on the town
I’ve said farewell to boogie on down
I’ve said farewell to long country hikes
I’ve said farewell to many of my likes
Like card making, jewellery making
And writing poetry with a pen
My hands won’t work now and again
So I’ve accepted this is the ‘Norm’ for me
They’ll always be challenges, I’ll never be free
I’ve said farewell to all that stuff
I live the best way I can
Because I’ve farewelled enough

  1. I have friends who have chronic illnesses and disabilities, so this is relatable. Thank you for sharing.
