I’m a Grenade

My body

a broken temple

My soul

a battered mess

Inside me lies a grenade

that will cause you undo stress.


Most can not handle

a broken life force

such as this;

as it requires much more patience

that one is willing to invest.

Chronic pain and physical weakness

crush one to the bone,

barely wanting to get out of bed,

 may as well live alone.

Something’s always hurting

pain intensely burning

every muscle and joint I own.

Today my jaw

Tomorrow my back

my legs

my arms

my neck

my head

My hands are burning 

each time I type.

My stomach aches from all the meds I take

my body, it tremors,

with every step I make.


Tears, I shed

each night in bed

before I close my eyes.

A pillow tucked between my legs

helps stop the muscle spasms 

in both my thighs.




I’ve become;

I tell you not my pain.

Feeling like a grey cloud

on your bright and sunny day.

I suffer so in silence

cause no one understands

the battle that I go through

every day when I try to stand.


All I ever wanted 

was to live a normal life.

I never asked for this body

that I was granted at my birth.

I know my inner strength now

will hold me to my worth.

I haven’t given up yet

I’m not ready to say that my illness has won.

Tomorrow I will awaken

and know I have reason to continue on.


I shout into the void

I scream into the night

Give me strength

Give me will

Guide me with your light.

My goddess will surround me

Healing energy will be my guide

and keep away all that is negative

so I may continue my fight to survive.


I am a blooming flower

A petal upon the wind

my colors will glow like fire’s light

my essence will show the good fight;

the strength I hold within.

Welcome to the Rivers of Grue. My name is Richard Charles Stevens and this is my immortal legacy. In honour of the fallen, from the deepest soul of an English gentleman with kind heart and eyes for only truth. While the subject matters herein may be dark, there exists always a light source.
