Vitiligo is a disease that takes my pigment away.
Sometimes I feel so low in MY spirit
that I just want to run away.
Run away from work, away from my husband
even away from my children, but when I consider
how much they LOVE me, running I see just won't work.
So I stay and face another day of stares and looks GALORE.
Sometimes it hurt, but there's nothing I can do,
but go ON and ON even more.
Old photo sometimes bring comfort,
but sometimes they can even bring pain.
To think of how I once was, but now that is all gone.
I stay in a mode of depression,
praying OH GOD for a cure, and maybe just
maybe someday soon,
I will be beautiful once more.
What is that, that tries to steal your joy, and
What is that, that tries to shut you down?
What is that, that makes you want to scream, and
What is that, that tries to crush your dream?
What is that, that wipes your smile away, and
What is that, that gives you sleepless nights?
What is that, that gives you great heart-ache, and
What is that, that keeps you wide awake?
What is that, that your love one can’t understand,
What is that, that your children just don’t get?
What is that, that you said you’d try to do, and
What is that, that has it’s HOLD on you?
What is that, that you wish you could have tried,
What is that, that you NEVER got to do?
What is that, that you wish you had never done, and
What is that, that others have done to you?
THAT...! RELEASE that, and prayerfully let that go,
So that, you’ll begin to soar, in the direction
That, you are really meant to go.
