A PIECE OF ME IS NOW AVAILABLE!
I guarantee you’re not as strong as me.
You live your life as simple as can be.
People judge me every day and constantly stare.
They don’t know half of the burden that I bare.
I guarantee you couldn’t walk a day in my shoes;
Receiving funny looks and comments that are rude.
I guarantee you couldn’t live a day like this
Medications, aches and scares are absolutely no bliss.
I guarantee you can’t handle the ignorant comments I endure;
Relationships that are challenged and ones that are pure.
I guarantee you wouldn’t enjoy this body of mine;
Your skin is beautiful, mine doesn’t even shine.
Constant doctor’s appointments, diagnosis’s’, other issues too;
I’d appreciate your life much better than you do.
I guarantee you couldn’t handle a life you don’t like,
And I’m just being honest, not speaking out of spite.
Make up doesn’t fix my problems and neither does a fancy dress
I wake up to no escape and prepare for my next stress.
You party, work, go to school and live life so free.
I guarantee you wouldn’t last a day being me.
If you think I’m wrong then prove it so the world can see.
My life is complicated, not as simple as you think.
Appreciate what you have is what I’ve been taught.
But how should I feel when I lose my hair by default?
I’ve accepted the consequences of this disease
I guarantee you wouldn’t be able to challenge me.
Wake up in the morning and don’t comb your hair
Make your face look disfigured so people can stare
Pick up your piles of stress and place them on a table
Limit your actions as if you’re disabled.
Go to the doctor’s every other day
I guarantee there is no way you can live this way.
Please hear me out when I tell you it’s true.
I hope something like this may never affect you.
I haven’t lost my hope or strength, but I have accepted my reality.
Once you understand this, you’ll appreciate much more and this I guarantee.
