Poem: Wishing Impossible

I want my life to be more
Than pills and pains and injections,
Doctors and specialists,
Clinic after clinic and test upon test;
More than
Ruthlessly policing every sip and bite,
Charting and calculating
Every breath and thought

I want to know how it feels
To be healthy;
To have intact cells and an
Automated, regulated system;
To trust my body to

I want to be unafraid
Of going blind,
Of rotting from the inside out,
Of going to bed at night

I want to be more
Than my disease
