HAWMC, health activist writer's month challenge

Health Haiku

Today’s prompt: “Write a haiku about your health focus. 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables. Write as many as you like.”

Hate my arthritis
I’ve never been normal so
Don’t know what I miss?

Arthritis is not
just what your grandparents had
It is so much more

Wake up with stiffness
15 pills a day or more
Fuck you fucking pain

People judge me cause
They think I’m fat and lazy
I’ve got arthritis

Wish I was normal
Just maybe for one whole year
I so miss running

Body hates itself
Medications can’t fix it
Is this forever?

Got pain every day
Nothing really seems to help
Will it ever stop?

  2. I feel like I really should've included happy ones, but what to say haha. You should write some and share them. It was soothing just to get them out there. Xoxoxoxoxo
