Treasure Island

I am tired now.... bone cold weary
and sick of my affliction
it advances relentlessly
I get moments here and there
where I can function as  human
but Parkinson's disease is progressive
and with it I am regressive
I can fight it mentally
I can not fight it physically
but I choose my response
and how I adapt
I will make the best
of what life serves me
when handed lemons
I'll do my best to serve lemon frosties

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
