I live with chronic pain due to a genetic condition I have called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
EDS is a collagen disorder. The best way to describe this is that Collagen is the glue of our bodies...my glue is just not as sticky as it should be.
It's believed I have one of the rarest types, Arthrochalasia (Formerly EDS Type VII A&B). It causes my joints to dislocate with great ease, my eyes deteriorate, my teeth (despite good care) crack and break because collagen holds enamel to our teeth, and mine's been slowly falling off for 35 years now.
Fibromyalgia is difficult to describe, it affects my muscles (and it's different for almost everyone, though mine appears to be muscular and neuro-stuff I can't spell or remember).
I grew up an atheist and this poem related to questions I used to ask myself about God's existence. Since then, a very serious accident many years ago have brought me to terms with EDS and I cherish having it now. When I should have been killed, EDS saved my life because my joints will dislocate before the bones are allowed to break. Pretty cool huh?
Still, I never understood why other's didn't get why I've always questioned the existence of God.
This is an experimental piece.
