Disability Pride Month

July is Disability Pride Month 🌈 So I wanted to end this important month by sharing a poem I wrote. I feel it ties in nicely with the sentiment.

For anyone who is living with a disability, visible or invisible – you matter and deserve to feel connected to the world and everyone in it. I see you xx

Unseen 

I prepare for a daily battle,
Against something that cannot be seen.
The chance of attack is quite certain,
From a foe, relentless and mean.
I try not to show how I’m feeling.
Knowing my fight’s just begun.
It is hard to carry such pain all alone,
The shame of a war never won.
On bad days I want to surrender.
It all feels too much to bear.
Yet something inside me just keeps pushing on,
I know that I must persevere.
This invisible force is tyrannic and cruel.
In its wake leaves massive destruction.
Compassion and hope will lead the defence,
Against this satanic affliction.
Be kind to others as you walk through your pain.
For you have no idea of theirs.
Together our force is unyielding,
Its powered by all that we share.
