POEM FOR 2 NOT-SO-LOUD VOICES

By the Women Affected By Parkinson’s in Spokane, WA

 

         VOICE 1                                                                                                   VOICE 2

I love someone with Parkinson’s

I’m sorry it wasn’t me

     TOGETHER

Times that are happy, times that are sad,

Most of the time…………life isn’t bad.

 

Need to be aware at all times-

Keep safe.

Parkinson’s makes me think

about how the body works.

Something new to talk about

Why must I lose sleep?

 

My stiffness makes me look mad,

my rigidity makes me feel sad.

But Parkinson’s has made me humble

and sometimes I mumble.

Sloth day? Tin Man?

Dang! I’m both!

Making new friends

 

Expanded social circle with

Amazing people

I hate the shakes

 

But………I can or could

make good milk shakes.

 

I hate forgetting things.

Scary journey!! Brought

us closer together!!

 

My children cried when I told them;

“Parkinson’s won’t kill me.”

 

I’m so new into this

The unexpected

I HATE TAKING PILLS!!

New friends are the best part of Parkinson’s
