My body betrays me
I have MS you see
From one day to the next
I wake up quite perplexed
Will this be a good day
To accomplish all that might come my way
Or will I feel out of sorts in complete disarray
There was a time my body was in perfect tune
Then one morning poof all was gone too soon
Never have I recovered in fact have gotten worse
Sometimes I think to myself surely I've been cursed
See here you foot or hand
You must move at my command
Alas no matter how hard I try or wish
Nothing happens right for this to be accomplished
Yup, sadly I've been betrayed
That forever I fear will be shaken
By a disease in my body so over taken

Your poem speaks of so much I behold and it is nice to know that we all have our own journeys yet they may possibly be very similar in so many ways.
