ITP and Me.
She gave me permission to post here on our blog so everyone can read and appreciate the feeling she shares.
Today I will wake up into the unknown,
Everyday's a blessing but everyday I feel alone,
I wonder what tomorrow will bring
I pray it will be good,
Will I be bruise free or will there be Blood?
I know I have I.T.P but what will others think,
Even though I stand so tall
I feel so ready to sink,
I'm really tired now
I think I will lie down,
But as I look in the mirror
All I see is my Hospital Gown.
The Dream is over, I'm not free as a Bird
I'm hooked to my life saver Bottle after Bottle
And this is now my Third,
I'm in my second home, now a hospital suite for me
All the people in and out as busy as can be,
But I have things to do, my home, my job, my kids,
Doesn't I.T.P know that I have no time for this?
My treatment is over and I'm drained from day to day
I will feel much better in time or so the doctors say.
I want to run around and come and go as i please,
But I.T.P has other plans and it has me on my knees.
I can pray for a cure or a magic wand if so
I can always pray for strength and let ITP go.
So if you ever see me, don't ask me how I feel
Just know my battle is very Hard and very, very Real.
