Yesterday I got out of bed
Changed out of my pajamas and into fresh clothes
Splashed water on my face and cleaned my teeth
I laced up my own shoes, i crawled into the bathroom
You and I have different definitions of a good day

Last week I attended school and pushed my own wheels

I focused harder than ever, tried not to faint in the corridor
The next day I cuddled my dog and slurred my words
I sat up to take medication, i crawled into the bathroom
You and I have different definitions of proud

Tomorrow might be better
Tomorrow maybe il make it to maths, stay awake long enough to eat
Maybe il text a friend or laugh with my mum
Maybe il wash my hair after crawling into the bathroom
You and I have different definitions of hope

But Tomorrow might not be great
Maybe I wont get out of bed or even comb my hair
What if I can barely talk, I cant sit up without collapsing
What if I cant think straight or even crawl to the bathroom
You and I have different definitions of normality

you think that a plan is something to stick to
I make plans only to cancel them

When you feel energetic you might be ready to hit the gym
When I feel energetic I have the energy to listen to music on my phone

You think tiered is needing to rest
im tiered but it never goes away

you think definitions come from the dictionary
but i think they come from experience
