You are not AlOnE

If life is a story then mental challenge is a page

Illness knows no mercy nor does it prefer an age

Not even gender too

 

Trying to bury your emotions in a plate of food

Writing your task list then forgetting what to do

Always telling yourself that you don’t belong

And every waking day it’s the same old song

‘I’m gonna be good today – no you’re not! Today I’m gonna be a….oh darn I forgot!

 

You don’t wanna be called special because you link that to a disability

Keeping it a secret because you are afraid of the community

Because some idiot, who’s ignorant might call you crazy….

But I say… the world could use a little crazy

 

Special is not disabled…it’s being unique,

You have a purpose on this land but you’re too negative to see it

Drop self-hate! Unveil self-appreciation

Love yourself and begin to teach your nation

There is so much we can do if we just begin to accept our reality

Stop exiling the victim and begin to help your family

Because the truth is, we are all a little crazy

Some of us just haven’t been diagnosed

Today, for her, but tomorrow, who knows?

 

Empower! Educate! Accept! Embrace!

The world is everyone’s home

And I don’t care what your diagnosis is I just know you are not alone

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Survivor

Your scars are beautiful, they show me strength, courage and POWER

Power over the BUMPS in life and PAIN that a sad day can bring

Let me kiss your beautiful head after you have SHAVED

I watch you shed the weight

You are a NEW WOMAN, re birthed and so you must LIVE for your sisters

And your life will honour those who didn’t survive life’s BUMPS

Learning Love

There are moments when I look back on our journey and I learn each day to appreciate

every tear,

every sweat,

every broken promise,

every battle

because only then would I be able to love you the way I do

I place God between us and my love around you.

People Change

Age creeps up on us and changes us without us noticing

Our experiences become lessons and in the background our minds change

Things that mattered become a memory and old promises made to ash

It’s inevitable, we grow and so past commitments become void

How can you cure a connection with someone when their cells continuously change? How can you believe in forever when yesterday will soon be a memory and today will someday be forgotten…
