Tried a Journal but Poems are more my style
Living with Parkinson’s gets harder each and every day
And I listen to and do everything my doc has had to say.
I exercise to keep my body flexible, strong and moving around
And read and work puzzles to keep my brain alert and sound.
I surround myself with those who have a positive attitude
And don't associate with folks who put me in a really bad mood.
When I open my eyes in the morning I start to think and plan
What can I do today so that others in my world will understand.
The frustration that I feel because I can’t do all the tasks I used to do
And why at times I can’t avoid feeling really down and a little bit blue.
But as I think of all of the people who are much worse off than me,
I resolve that today will be better than the day before, and IT WILL BE!
