(Johannesburg Gauteng South Africa)
When you have Multiple Sclerosis,
It is funny;
You are not allowed to cry,
Wipe those tears
Back of your eyes will hurt
Like you are getting blind
Not allowed to fall
Keep your walker near
Getting up will take ages
Even if you don't break anything
Beware of some, who would enjoy
Pushing you when no one is looking
Just get up if you fall, hold those tears
Be thankful if you didn't break anything!
Force a smile, yes you can.
Take an Ibucod if necessary
Wash your child's school shirts
Hang them to dry
Go shopping with your scooter
Cook up something healthy, smile
Don't let your brain swell
You can not afford hospital
Or getting 9000 ml of Cortisone IV.
You have to be there for your child
You must meet her teachers on 22nd
Wipe those tears tell her not to worry, get up!
Not allowed to fall when you have MS
Not allowed to feel sad
Get up force a smile until it is funny.
