You Can See It

jessthecrohnie:

In my eyes when I am in pain

In the tears that are hiding behind my lashes

In my crooked walk

In my bloated stomach

In my pale face

In my scars, my bruises

In my handful of pills and tablets

In my scrapbook filled with hospital bracelets

In my blood pressure, in my pulse

You can see my illnesses. They are not invisible. I am not invisible.
