No job, no money, A body that doesn't work.
but I,m happier now, no pressure from others.

when you are disabled, no one expects any thing.
we may have nothing but no pressures either.

I should value nothing, more than I do.


You have taken nothing and turned it into a personal treasure while the rest of us seek more and more of the worldly things, we loose the value and gift of inner peace. I wonder, who is really, handicapped? You say so much, with few words.

Thank You

This makes me wanna grab a few tissues for my eyes. I like your strong personality and courage that helps you to endure your struggles. You make me happy just knowing that you're alive!

Take care Barb,

Barb, just to expound on me being happy that you're alive; I mean after your brain tumor and stroke.
Again, good poem!
