No Ransom

I am tired of things the way they are

Still terrified to change anything

My life has been kidnapped

By this damned disease

Any time I start to feel better

It backfires on me

But I am getting stronger inside

And soon I may have what it takes

To turn things around

To put ME first for once

No matter how many down days I have

I know the good will return

It is just so easy to be jaded

By the days that are hard
