WEIGHT BEARING WHEN I WAKE UP

Right leg in muscle spasm tight
Awaken to the ache at night
Twenty-five percent force on the floor
It hurts too much to weight bear more

What's wrong is I am slowly dying
The flared-up herniated disc is crying
For surgery because it's bone on bone
That's the kind of pain I own

From hip to calf, from back to hip
It's torture squeezes a tighter grip
For ten days can barely walk
Continue on with written talk.
