A default that has no cure,
For its unnatural in the young.
Appears naturally in old age,
Was never expected in a young mum.
No thought was ever taken,
To find a way to heal it,
For it's only the old who suffered,
And in their last years feel it.
What still remains strange,
Is that it settled in quite well.
Came in on its last legs... In its final stage!
There was no use in crying,
For facts were clear as day.
Was stamped sick and and damaged,
Awaiting the last day.
Yet with it brought a storm!
One of fight and greater longing.
Though at times bitterness prevailed,
I grabbed life by the balls...
And gave it a clear warning...
I shall not fall I shall not cry,
Each day I strive to prove.
Even damaged good can fly,
You've all watched me.. Now move.
Proven each and everyday,
That mind is greater than our vessel.
Out danced out lived the best of you,
But the time has come for me to settle.
My body can no longer follow,
Where my mind keeps flowing.
But I take great comfort that through my words...
Your all having fun and enjoying.
Enjoying a soul that has outsmarted life.
And with it took the reigns.
Though the body broke..
I've left my legacy on you with my daily morning coffee stains.
