Poem: I Am Not

 I Am Not
I am not my disease,
But my disease is in me.

I am not my disease,
It does not laugh, or cry,
Or tell cheesy jokes.

I am not my disease,
It does not make decisions,
It does not dream.

I am not my disease,
And yet…

I am not my disease,
But it does affect me.

I am not my disease,
But it makes me laugh, and cry
And I joke about it.

I am not my disease,
But it affects my decisions,
And how I live my dreams.

I am not my disease,
But my disease is in me.

Great poem! I think this is very true of everyone who has a disease of any kind.
