But No One Seems To Understand

What’s the matter with me? Why does my head feel so strange?
Why does a child screaming cause me so much pain?
Yet to listen to music brings me back to some normality again!
But no one seems to understand!

I went away on holiday by the sea, then this accident happened to me,
My whole life changed at the moment of impact …………. so rapidly!
My head hurt I couldn’t sleep, my eyes looked vacant and it was hard to see,
But no one seems to understand!

My speech was slurred, my eyes couldn’t focus …….. in fact I saw three!
I have no bandages, or an arm in a sling …… my problems you cannot really see!
My mood swings are quite often ………. Their really challenging my personality!
But no one seems to understand!

My left hand side does not seem to want to be with me,
It seems to fight and retaliate against me!
I have to push it daily to conform …… it is so hard to do as its now not the norm!
Sometimes my brain tells me wrong, and the things I do … seem to take far too long!
But no one seems to understand!

My memory of life ……………. some has been taken away from me,
My short term memory really is gone or is ready to flee!
A simple job now turns into mammoth tasks.
But no one seems to understand!

Crowded places I try to avoid …….. there’s too much information going on,
Stress is a factor that I now cannot bare, it takes its toll and I try not to go there!
People have said that I have changed …….. I’m not the man I used to be,
But to be fair they are right ……. as sometimes I don’t even like me!

It has been said that some people think I’m “swinging the lead”
They think there’s nothing wrong ……with me …….. with my head!
I can’t count money …………… or sort out the little change,
But no one seems to understand!

My soul is still the same ……… my sense of humour is still ok,
Because of that ………….. I think it has saved the day!
I can still laugh and joke and try to be as normal as one can be,
Really I’m very lucky as I am still alive to see, walk and even be me!

But no one seems to understand!
