My Disability Poem

8/9/2014       Comment   My Disability Poem

I could not see tomorrow when my disabilities took hold of me.

 Life was supposed to be easier than that but it never seemed that way to me.

 I always wondered what 'normal' meant but never really knew.

It always seemed outside my reach, just hidden from my view
.
 With age, my hidden disabilities aren't so hidden anymore, Disorganization,

forgetfulness and memory loss make every task a chore.

And try not to judge me if I come across as dumb. It's due to years of seizures, that's left my brain cells numb.

I think of days gone by, surrounded by my fears.

 And finally come to realize I was empowered all those years.

 Creativity. A common characteristic of bipolar disorder, seizure disorder and ADHD.

But I try not to let them get the best of me.
