When did my immune system grow so weak,
where I was once always healthy and well?
I now feel so sick that I cannot speak,
my throat is bone-dry and it burns like hell.
Where along the line did I lose my strength
to become this faint, pale, miserable mess?
I would once try and go to any length
but now I'm content to settle for less.
Why do I always become so dizzy
when I stand to my aching feet in haste?
I feel like I'm always keeping busy
but I am letting my life go to waste.
I cannot stand all of this feeling ill
and I feel a slave to my failing will.
