Feeling worthless over another lost day

How long will this suffering stay

Some think I’m a con

I just want this to be gone

They say it us all in my head

There is not even comfort here in my bed

My hair hurts it even tingles

My phone is silenced because I cannot stand the jingles

Oh that they could understand the pain

Oh God how can this be for Your gain

No light of day only darkness and shade

Surgeries yes but no cure under the blade

Today I am lost in the pain

Lord God you alone reign

From this dark and lonely place

Please God show me your healing grace
