TO BE WELL AGAIN!
« on: May 31, 2006, 06:57:12 PM »
To Be Well Again

My life consists of Doctors and pills.
No longer am I working and using my skills.

What purpose could this illness serve?
To ruin the quality of life I deserve.

It does no good to question why,
But sometimes it helps to sit and cry.

I wish things were different for me and my life.
The pain I am in can cut like a knife.

God has a plan for each and everyone,
I am just thankful to see the rising sun.

No matter how bad I may feel today,
My hope for tomorrow will be better in some way.

To some people who don’t know who I am,
I look like a freak, as they stop, stare and stand.

 These people I can overlook,
My illness is not on the cover of a book.

To you who judge me and shake your head,
And remark behind me “I’d rather be dead”.

 This is my life, the only one I have.
God chose me for the strength, He knew I would have.

Anonymous, and NOT!
The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

Hi Tim,
Thanks for posting that poem. I have been feeling just like the poem in the past few months. Sometimes everything can make you feel so alone. I know I am not, but on those dark days it is hard.

Sorry your VL is not cooperating. Sending you good thoughts and prayers your way!

Uncle Tim,

There is not an hour goes by that I don't think of you.

Leave it to you to post such a poignant poem...it certainly sums up what so many feel, and live with, everyday!

Love you much,

Tim, my sweet soulmate

If I could lift a tiny bit of your pain I would be so happy. Wished I could hug you and give you some energy.

You just have my dear, you just have. ;D

To all the rest of you, I so much thank you for "getting it".
