by Tylia L . Flores
I may not own a sword
But I am a warrior of my own kind.
Having a condition called Cerebral Palsy
That causes me to have low muscle tone and stiffness
Throughout my whole left side of my body.
Sometimes life gets crazy
Going to specialist after specialist
Only to get the same answer that there’s no cure
But that doesn’t matter to me ’cause I’m a warrior.
Fighting my own battle every day trying to find a way to make it
As writing is my getaway to help me get through the bad days
As I remember that I’m a warrior.
