There comes a time when the meaning of life begins to make sense
There comes a time when the meaning of life begins to make sense,
At first it may not,
The sky at first may look dark,
The path one needs to walk down may be hard to see,
Never let a disorder control one’s destiny,
life created will not move forward,
cannot be positive, fulfilling future,
If you let it control your mind, body and soul,
At this point, one cannot give up,
A disorder cannot control,
You control your disorder,
Accept your disorder,
Love yourself now and forever,
You were thrown against a corner when you developed epilepsy,
Getting up was not an option,
Now it is,
Today is a new day,
If you stay down life will pass you by,
So help yourself get up,
fight the battle and win,
To win the battle you do not have to stop having seizures,
Winning the battle is teaching you how to live a healthy productive life,
Helping you cope,
Life may not always become what you want them to be,
The road you lead may have some u-turns involved,
Do not fear,
For change can be good,
Follow your path that was laid out for you,
The sun is now shinning,
You can now see your path
There is a plan, a destiny that awaits you,
Do not question your destiny,
Do not ask questions such as “why me?”
Accept the path that has been laid in front of you.
Do not be afraid,
Take one day at a time,
Be proud of who you are,
Walk with courage and your head up high,
Believe in yourself,
Focus on the positive,
For the footsteps imbedded in ground of your new path will become the solid foundation to your future.

|From one who has allowed a few, even more, disorders into my checkered and wayward life, your words are the absolute truth. Even when I was down, and I mean down, I never felt I was a victim, rather I felt that it necessary to take that very first step, and so doing I found that the rest of the steps toward fulfillment and conquering the disorder came much more easily.|

|UNBELIEVABLE! I have struggeled with this disorder for 40 years, uncontrolled. Out of years of doctors and theripists, I have never heard the insight from them as I have from your words. I had to learn to accept this aspect of reality on my own. When I found these poems of yours. You made my heart smile. Thank You!|
|Reviewed by Donna Quesinberry
With a son with a TBI and seizure activities - your poem makes a real statement - the second today relative to his day-to-day effort to overcome the obstacles associated with a brain insult and resultant issues.
Your poem is an effective read that pushes us to continue stepping forward.
|Reviewed by Lois Christensen
|I have a new beginning in a new apt. and new friends and need to go onto a new life. Your poem suggests that I do just that, it is not so hard to do either. Might take some working on it, or it might not. Depends on what God has in store for me in the rest of my living that I have to do. I'll wait patiently for my final day.|

|This is a good poem to wake up to and read every morning before doing anything else, and it makes you want to re-think your life-style.
I like this poem very much. I am pleased to see that there's so much talent on this website.
