We’ve all been through some stress and strain
and convalesced from chronic pain.
It’s all grist to the mill for me,
because I’ve got an ostomy.
At first there’s stress before the op.
It’s then the worst of pain won’t stop.
And maybe it was never said,
sometimes I wished that I were dead.
There’s always something in my mind,
telling me that life’s unkind.
One question that keeps coming through,
why is this happening to you ?
I try to seek the reasons why.
When I feel weak I’ll sit and cry.
For this is just the way I get,
when stress and strain make me upset.
Stress and strain has world renown
for the way it drags you down.
Even though you do your best,
you can still end up depressed.
The trouble is with stress and strain,
it does come back time and again.
Especially so when things go wrong,
or pain and strain will linger long.
I’ve always wished to be content,
or at least to some extent.
I should stay calm and maybe sane,
if free from harmful stress and strain.
This has been a struggle for me
to juggle with my ostomy,
and all the stress and strain that brings
on top of all life’s other things.
