My Poet's Dream

I have cerebral palsy; there I said it, that’s me.

For a long time I prayed to be free.

A beautiful mind trapped in a body of disease.

For a long time this is what I believed.

This physical battle had me feeling defeat.

Am I up against a war that cannot be beat?

But then I realized freedom is in my mind.

My mind is free to dream with no physical bind.

As I began to dream, my mind filled with beautiful words of rhyme.

I could build my own masterpiece in this poet's dream of mine.

Even if I can't do everything physically...

In my poetry is where I find that I am truly free.

So as I go through life I have one main goal,

That you hear all my poems, so I can share my soul.

Man is born to live, not to prepare for life. - Boris Pasternak

I am so glad that you began to dream! To realize that who you are is not the sum total of what things your body can and cannot do, but the brilliance of your soul and the creativity of your words can move mountains of emotions, fill oceans with tears of laughter, and bless those who have the joy of reading you, knowing you. You have a gift. You can touch people in ways that others wish they could. Few can write. Fewer still can write well.

You write very well indeed.
