side effect a poem by gary pelows

nausea, dizziness, tired, fever, sweating, as if i had cancer, chemotherapy, motivation is fleeting when under the weight of fatigue, and sickness and fear,  monumental  physical  stress, dangerous trip just to get groceries, november wind is biting us all, cold fear of the winter, i complete my tasks, with no joy, no sense of accomplishment , no sense of joy and energy, life is a drudgery, how to be happy despite this mental physical pain, not a quick or easy assignment, exhausted on the bridge from goodman, vommiting on the sidewalk, want to drop everything, the weight is to great, or so it seems, yet i am here, i made it, iwill make it
