About the Poem
Any type of illness can be devastating Some are far worse than others, isolating once active souls into a mere shadow of who they once were
No Longer Who I Used To Be
|by Pauline Hamblin|
|Can you see
The illness that haunts me?
Others don't understand.
To them my disease is just a name.
But I will never be the same.
I never thought
It would happen to me.
Disease is not choosy -
My body chosen, just happened to be.
My body's changing.
I can't be the person you're used to seeing.
Emotions run high.
My pain is real.
It haunts the very existence of my being.
Please don't judge me
If I seem angry.
For I don't understand
How my pain and suffering
Can be a part of God's master plan.
