A Poem about Parkies

 
 
 
 I've always written poems
 It’s just been what I do
  
 But this will be a poem
 Of something that’s quite new
  
 My poems; they are mostly
 Designed to raise a laugh
  
 But with this subject matter
 It’s more than a job and a half
  
 I can’t say the diagnosis
 Has been so unexpected
  
 My parents also had it
 So, I’ve always been affected
  
 So Parkies is the name
 I’ve given my condition
  
 To live my life and love my life
 Will now become my mission
  
 Although I know, there will be days
 When times will be quite tough
  
 Those I love will be with me
 And that will be enough
  
 So if you too have Parkies
 Or whatever name you give it
  
 It doesn’t matter what it’s called
 It matters how you live it

I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
