Painful Existence To Mae - Poem by Thomas Vincent Anthony Stone Kurzdorfer

I exist in physical pain
a disease spreading to my brain
will soon drive me insane
only God can change my lane

My teeth need work rot dental
I cannot walk nor ride
gained too much weight I hide
duress sometimes i'm mental

friends, family say I'm fine
to avoid a guilty mind
they do not want a part
of me and my broken heart

of those who's lives are cherry
my state has made them weary
my being stops theirs being merry
they choose to ignore cause it's scary

one daughter says I'm too young
and i am full of cows dung
at my age i should be out and about
she does not know soon i will be

two sons they never call me
they want their minds to remain free
won't accept the possibility
that all I have could actually be.

so I pray for strength and I still hope
that a cure will come and I can cope
and I don't get desperate and be a dope
by finding a way to use a rope.
