3WW- Fear, Ignore, Weightless


REFLECTION

My heart is heavy.
I must put on a smile, for
Fear is wasted emotion
That pulls me down.
I feel muscles, wasting away
Under weightless armor,
Buffed in prayers, shining in love.
I know a cure will come one day,
Riding on a powerful steed.
I hear his gallop coming,
In the distance, slow moving
Carrying a cure.

A poem for May's ALS Awareness Month

Courage...

My mother had MS and she treated the diagnosis as a death sentence, rolled over and was gone shortly.

Your courage inspires me.

Fear is a wasted emotion and yet sometimes....

Tammy, we are going to come see you after June 17th. We will both be retired then and will be free, entirely FREE. What are your plans, if any?

Fear is indeed a wasted emotion, as is regret.

Fear is a wasted emtion. To often people give in to it.

It will come. Have faith.

I am with the others in praying for its arrival.
