This poem really made me think. You did a great job of explaining the challenges of one suffering with inner frustrations or illness and how others don't have a clue how they really feel. Great work!

A clarion call for empathy - well expressed.
I’m sorry you suffer so. No judgement for your pain and confinement. Prayers that you can find some peace and relief as you Praise the Lord. I pray you have special friendships that bring you love and laughter. This life can be tough, especially when dealing with chronic pain. May God’s mercy bring you comfort and relief.

Your poetry certainly expressed emotions which the reader clearly understood. Well written.
This blows me away. Pain is not something everyone can understand. You did an awesome job of taking this reader on a journey in your shoes. I think this will open some eyes and help more people understand chronic illnesses. I liked your take on the topic too. It was fresh and original.

You well expressed the internal pain you feel when you cannot live life. I'm so sorry you hurt so much. :(

Chronic pain is real. This work is beautiful. Your vulnerability and honesty are refreshing. Well done.

Powerful and to the point. Sometimes, truly, only experiencing pain can bring the compassion that God clearly calls us to as Believers. This hurts in places that it should.
