I’m better off than some and worse than others,

There are those who start out with not much of a chance,

Then there are others with not a chance at all, they fall.

From my time as a child I had scrapes and bruises, I survived,

Born healthy enough except a rare problem with an eye.

Fell on my face and one day broke my teeth, better than cancer I believe,

When I was a teen the brain surgeries began when at school I fell on my head.

Broken bones, emotional scars that can never go away, pain of the day,

I am still alive! I have survived all sicknesses that have attacked my being.

As time has gone by a massive heart attack has visited my life,

What waits for us each day is not known as we roam our earthly home.

My time here has not been worse or better than so many who I have met,

How amazing it is that we make it through each day and live beyond being young.

The odds are against us all as we dodge many bullets taking many unknown roads,

My life long pain carries scars, dreams that haunt and remind me of past life.
