A PIECE OF ME
I’m presenting you with a piece of me
I’ll always remain strong and never weak
Sometimes lupus gets the best of me
But I’m standing here strong and free
Life presents hardships that you are faced to see
But I won’t give up as long as I can breathe
I want to share with you my joy and some of my strife,
So you can understand a big piece of my life
I’m blessed to have conquered so much pain and sorrow
A piece of me I’ll give for you to borrow
I possess strength, faith, love and hope
Through all my downfalls I’ve managed to cope.
Not too many could do what I do
I’ve been through so much; no offense to you.
I’ve remained humble, kind and true.
Most can’t handle what I’ve been through.
Here’s a piece of me for all that it’s worth
Walk a day in my shoes to understand my hurt
There’s a crazy illness that has entrapped my life
You may not understand now, but at the end you just might
When you finally understand, don’t feel sorry for me
I’m doing this for you because I want you to see
That life is a challenge even when it feels like a breeze
Appreciate the good things and any lack of need.
Prepare yourself, open your heart and mind for this read.
Ride along on my journey and accept a piece of me.
