Life With Chronic Pain

By Damien Knight

For the past 11 years I been struggling with a list of unusual symptoms. It started soon after my son was born, back pain, numb legs, leg cramping, hip and joints burning. As the years went it has gotten worse. It’s hard on me because as a geology major who wants to work in the field having to walk with a cane bites.

My legs go numb, my skin burns. I always hated being touched. It hurts to be touched. What hurts worse is wanting to hug my kids and the pain is so bad I can’t. I don’t know what’s wrong with my body. We have done test after test. There is no reason my legs are falling asleep and then burning like fire. They found nothing wrong with my back and hips. I started taking Aleve daily which helps dull the pain but not erase it.

Today I stand. Today I walk. Today I hurt. I will push for tomorrow. We will figure this out. In the meantime I remain strong and hopeful.

Blood Denied

By Damien Knight

(Dedicated to my Little sister Tiffany who despite taking her off the streets and supporting her she decided to make false accusations and drug her own children. Some family don’t deserve to be called family)

Blood Denied

I took you in and fed you
You were dead, I revived you
Even though I knew the pain
How it would drive me insane
You are the blood in me
But this is how you treat family
You are unworthy of our name
With your lies and little games
You deny reality and believe your tale
I no longer do its grown stale
Your lies are like a soured wine
Your stench to me that of dead swine
I trusted you, clothed you
But this is what you do
Well you got what you seek
Your name we no longer speak
See you now have no family
Now you don’t even have me
You walked away from us
Running after sex and drugs
Well we don’t need that in our blood
So now you’re nothing more than mud
You have become dirty lying scum
Just so you can get you some
So stay away from me
And the rest of my family
