Alzheimers is the disease that interrupts our mind by gaps of time,
ALS is the one that takes away our body one muscle at a time,
Depression sends us to a heavy fog of ash & suns rays never shatter,
ADHD is a Rolodex of fleeting thoughts
that disallows us to escape from the clatter,
Autism is on spectrum,
and parents emotions run deep,
when they can’t seem to reach their child somedays,
even with the biggest leap.
Sometimes beautiful sometimes frightening,
Hoping to cling to some reality
that won’t send our loved ones fleeing
Bi-polar robs us of the present,
some days we are so high we can fly,
others we lie on the floor,
because we can’t move our shoe to tie
There are many more
I’m just writing out through emotion
I am not choosing any to ignore
I tend to close my eyes and dream of the ocean
because my thoughts can be more than I can bear.
I do know one thing,
Never, ever give up hope,
Days can feel like a never ending bee sting,
But there us always joy
… after a painful slope.
my attempt at poetry from my experience , strength and hope.
