Poem

Sickness once overcame me

To a level I could not bear

But now I’m living fine

Sure a pill once a day has kept me from being completely normal

But now I am a “normal” teen other than my sickness

With all the hardships included

I have crushes

I have friends

Slumber parties too

But two pills each day have kept me from being a “normal” kid

But normal is not new

It is not what I need

Not because it is overrated

Or because it isn’t cool

But because I love to be the weird kid at school

Not because I yell or interrupt class or anything like that

But because I accept my quirks

And love me just like that
