    Morning has broken

    Morning has broken like the first morning
    Muscles not woken with the alarm

    Praise for the tablets
    Praise medication
    Praise prescriptions help engage the world


    Parkinson’s new fall, balance a problem
    Walk like a robot as tension starts to pass
    Praise for the bathroom with urgent bladder
    Relief completed but just in time.


    Mine is the stiffness
    Aches in the morning
    Born of Parkinson’s won’t go away

    Treat with exercise, stretch ev'ry morning
    My situation day after day


    Morning has broken like the first morning
    Parkinson’s woken by the alarm
    Praise for the tablets
    Praise medication

    Praise prescriptions, as life unfurls

    There I went, reading this with that pleasant Cat Stevens tune -- I'm reminded of an old customer, in his 80s, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's, i want to say he said in his 60s. I had no idea. We spent an hour talking and he mentioned it, then extended his hand out to me. He explained the neurological aspects to it and gave me a visual of an attempt to go out the door. He had to turn and trick himself to get through. It wasn't until then that I had noticed his cane. He apparently was a part of a local support group and gave me some recommendations for my uncle(I believe my uncle still denies the diagnosis). Anywho, thank you for reminding me about him. He was quite pleasant and encouraging, that would be a couple of years ago now...

    Great poem, somber. I'm not sure how to feel, but I am quite moved.

      When you get up, accept each day, and write about it in a way to bring understanding to others...I'd say you have lived well. I'm with Cats...this is a great poem.

        I am glad this brought your Uncle to mind. It is quite sombre but with the subject matter it just reflects reality
