A PD POEM, thank you!


I wake before the sun thankful for the darkness

I rise thankful for my drowsy sleepy thoughts, my brain, my mind

I stand thankful for my humanity, my beating heart, my Soul

I wash thankful for my challenges, inspirations, gifts, my life

I watch the early infant sun explode the horizon, reveal the landscape/world

And I’m thankful for who and what I am and will be

You and your smile

    Parkinsons doesn`t give a dam

    Whether your a woman or a man,

    Whether your old or young, it is no fun

    When the doctor says "you have it"

    How to cope I hear you say

    Well as an expert `it`s .....okay"

    But don`t give in and let it win,

    Just take that first punch on the chin.

    Don`t keep it a secret, Let everyone know

    Especially before the symptons do show.

    It`s easier for people to understand,

    Why you a tremor in your hand.

    Life gets hard and is very tiring,

    But life still goes on

    I`m 13 years down the line

    And "YES" I`m still having fun.

    Parkinson`s is not a killer

    It just gets in the bloody way.

    It makes you tired,grumpy and Tearful

    Some people are like it anyway.

    But the IOM has a great society

    We get together each month

    A drop- in a the Palace Hotel

    Down on Douglas front.

    We have some lunch & plenty of chat,

    Some games or maybe a speaker

    I`ve also met some wonderful people

    So Thank you Parkinson`s for that.
