I am new to this forum but have found lots of the poems and stories very moving, I am by no means a poet so please don,t expect to much I just wanted to add my thought and feelings.
Put yourself in my shoes, this makes me smile as one of the symptoms I have found is that I struggle to get my shoes on as my little toes decide to scrunch up and refuse to snuggle into my shoes as they use too!!
So put yourself in my shoes if only for a short while , you see I have Parkinson's and it does not make you smile
My days are now a battle, a ferocious fight, I wanted to win today? One day I hope I might?
But Parkinson's will never lose and always gets its way leaving me exhausted at the end of every day.
So put yourself in my shoes to glimpse at what it's like to never be at peace until the middle of the night, when you finally fall asleep and are still for a while.
I know it's not very poetic but I do feel it is a constant battle and I worry how it will affect me in years to come, I thankfully do have a very caring family who support me so much , and we all need to raise awareness so that we can continue to do research to find a cure for this awful disease.
I love that Cherub and it seems to put everything my husband says to me . How he wishes he could stop shaking just for an hour. Look forward to reading more from you. I wish I was a creative as some of you on here :)
Thanks Sue, I know how your husband feels its so difficult to explain to anyone who does not have PD that it never stops you can never forget about it, it is a constant battle just to keep it under control its exhausting! It does help to know there are others out there who feel the same it stops you feeling isolated.
Actually Cherub In my case poems do not have to scan, or even rhyme, so I found your poem lovely and it said everything which needed to be said. So, Well done.Love BA x
BA that is such a nice thing to say it has made me smile which is not something info very often theses days. Your kind words have made me think I may express myself again in this forum I found it very therapeutic :-) x
Ps please feel free to tell me truthfully if it is rubbish lol!
Good morning cherub, your poem was very very good, I found it describes this
evil disease to perfection and the effects it has
