THis Poem is about my daughters struggle to cope with Cystic Fibroses.

THE GIRL WHO COULDN’T BREATH
 
 
I  lay here gasping for air
 
People come and go
 
When will they see?
 
The monsters in my head
 
When would they see?
 
I just want to breathe
 
I just want to breathe
 
I hate that stupid neb
 
And all the silly meds
 
When would they see?
 
When would they see?
 
I just want to breathe
 
I just want to breathe
 
I hate my stupid life
 
Everyday and night
 
When would they see?
 
I just want to breathe
 
I just want to breathe
 
I just want to breathe
 
I hate my stupid neb
 
And all my silly meds
 
The monsters in my head
 
When would they see?
 
When would they see?
 
When would they see?
 
I just want to breathe

I just want to breathe
 
Breathe, breathe, breathe
 
Just breathe, just breathe
Cystic Fibrosis has taken my life 
 
I can’t breathe like this
 
When will they see?
 
I just want to breathe
 
I just want to breathe
 
I just want to run and play and have fun all day
 
Why can’t they see? The life that I have
 
Is not the one for me
 
I just want to breathe to live my life the way I like
 And just breathe in this life.
 
DEDICATED TO MY DAUGHTER SHANNON
AND HER LIFE LIVING WITH CYSTIC FIBROSIS

I really liked this. I especially liked the repitition which I think emphasised the want yet inability to breathe, and for everyone to 'see'. Great poem :)
