My Origninal Song Lyrics for 2007 "Prison of Pain": Living with Narcolepsy and Fibromyalgia

Rachel Nesmith arthritis chronic illness chronic pain fibromyalgia lupus narcolepsy

My Prison of Pain


Living my life,

Going to school,

And then suddenly,

Planes fly into the towers...

What's going on?




That same week,

Whenever I sleep,

I find myself

Having nightmares that seem


And I cannot speak.




I'm in a prison of pain,

My body's a prison of pain,

Everything I do---

There's no escape.

Can you help me now?


I'm in a prison of pain,

My body's a prison of pain,

Everything I do---

There's no escape.

Is it hopeless now?




The voices I can hear,

The fire I can feel

I cannot flee,

While intruders torture me,

What's happening?


Someone tells a joke,

Instantly I laugh,

And then suddenly,

I collapse to the floor,

It's the weirdest thing.





Everywhere I hurt,

Whenever I move,

I feel the pain.

There's a fire that never stops.

And I don't know why.


Fatigue takes over,

Depression sets in...

I watch my dreams-

Become figments of imagination.

Why is life so grim?





Every time I think I might escape,

I realize who's in charge.

Narcolepsy and Fibromyalgia--

They're my prison's bars.





Is this a dream?

Will I wake up?

I'm trapped inside,

No longer able to drive or work...

Can't make ends meet.


This situation--

it's tough to deny,

My body's in charge,

But my will, it surely survives!

I'll persevere.




This prison of pain

It drives me insane.

Help me get out--

And help me to survive.

Thank God for you.





Important Notice:


I hope my friends especially living with narcolepsy and /or fibromyalgia can relate to this song I have written. This creation is a piece of my soul, which took considerable creative effort and energy.
