That is not me

That is not me
Who you see
In front of you today.
My body betrays me
And makes me be
The one you wish you could send away.
The complainer
The negative one
The one who cries in pain
Who cannot sit at the desk you give her.
Lame, oh so lame. 
The one who cites the ADA
Who demands special treatment
All because she can’t stand up
After sitting without walking bent.
I used to be strong
And I used to be happy
I used to be the one you wanted the others to be like
What happened to me?
Is it my fault?
Am I to blame?
Why do I want to cry and defame
Every one of you for not understanding?
Can’t you see that it hurts?
Can’t you see it’s not my fault?
Surely you know me by now.
This is not me
Who you see
In front of you today.
