I was born a fighter.
I will never give up,
throw in the towel,
It just won’t happen.
I may not wear a cape,
have my initials emblazoned across my chest
or leap tall buildings in a single bound
but I do wear PJ’s,
have coffee stains on my shirt
and fall faster than the speed of light.
That’s part of being a Multiple Sclerosis superhero.
Because of MS I’m a doctor without a diploma,
a professional freestyle tumbler and
a grammy winning performer.
I forget appointments,
trip on air and
stumble over itty bitty cracks.
Yes, that’s me.
I’m a hard working,
ice vest wearing,
Multiple Sclerosis WARRIOR.
