Poem: Just a Girl who's Stuck in the House

I'm just the girl who's stuck in the house
Never seeming to leave to be out and about
The neighbours never see me, when I'm ill in bed
They just see a shadow at the window overhead
Looking out, wishing I could be out there
Knowing that being in bed is all I can bear

This is not how any life should be
It feels like I've lost a part of me
One day I'll find that part again
Once I've recovered from this ill pain

I know I've gained from being ill
A strength that comes from this bitter pill
For now I'm just the girl who's stuck in the house
Far too exhausted to do anything else
I'll make the best of what I have
It's better than focusing on all I've lost.
