How many parts of me have been studied,
X-rayed, put under a microscope? Brain,
Spinal fluid, blood, urine, bones, lungs, skin,
Tendons, cartilage, eyes, ears, teeth, hormones
Top to bottom, hands and feet, front to back
Even my thoughts and feelings analyzed,
Countless hours waiting, testing, waiting
Again, for results that may or may not
Result in answers. We're ruling it out,
They say, but I say, they don't have a clue.
