Poem: How do I?

Poetry- something I haven’t written for a long time. But sometimes it has better words – less is more.

How do I deal with disability

When it was not my fault?

When there’s no official diagnosis?

When I don’t know what limits I’m facing?

How do I deal with a disability

When I wasn’t prepared,

When I’m still not prepared,

To give up all that could be lost?

God please give me the strength

To see positives in my new future

To make peace with events

And create rules in my uncertainty.

God please give me the power

To make peace with the past

To adapt my new future

And to rise once again.
