MY LIFELONG PAIN
I'm better off than some and worse than others,
There are those who start out with not much of a
Then there are others with not a chance at all,
From my time as a child I had scrapes and bruises,
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 inside.
As time has gone by a massive heart attack has visited
What waits for us each day is not known as we roam our
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 lifelong pain carries scars, dreams that haunt and
Remind Me of past life.
Sometimes, it takes, a life altering experiences to realize, just how much we’d been, blessed with in our lives…
Thanks for your thoughts.
