A Chronic Illness Doesn’t Define You

A chronic illness will change the way you live life,

It can make you feel like you’ve been stabbed in every joint by a knife.

It can change how you view things, even your mindset,

You tend to feel like you’re forever trapped in a drowning net.

Your relationships will start to change,

Your life just feels like it has been rearranged.

A chronic illness can change a lot,

But don’t ever allow it to define who you are, no matter what baggage this illness has brought.

You are still you, just stronger,

This illness will not have a hold on you, not any longer. ♡

I Remember That Day

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” ― G.K. Chesterton

Veterans
I REMEMBER

In flames and rivers of blood they lay,

With weary eyes, they saw their fate.

As the chaos of war reached for their souls,

Courage bid them rise and fight that day.

When the battle raged and wounded fell,

Death threw open the burning gates of Hell,

And good men carried the Brave away.
