A Piece of Me
The following is a series of poems written by me. The poems are based on my personal experiences and feelings. As I go through life battling this disease, I experience a broad range of emotions on a daily basis. I chose to reveal my emotions to the world not only to give you a taste of my deepest thoughts and feelings but also to reveal what others similar to me may experience while battling this illness or any illness. The life of a person with Lupus isn’t easy. I’ve been battling with this part of my life for over 18 years now and it’s all because of the complication of this illness that I experience so many complex emotions. After reading this, I hope that you not only appreciate your life a little bit more, but also appreciate the life of others surrounding you. We are not meant to travel down the same path, we are not meant to experience the same experiences, but I do believe we are meant to live on the same earth and grasp some type of meaning of life.
