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.
