I Am

I am not what i seem to be

most people think i am weak minded

Ive been told im selfish, arrogant 

but what most dont know is what ive been though

I fight though my type 1 diabetes everyday 

You may not know why but i do it for my family

Yes i could easily give up and have them take care of me

But who would that help?

I am a determined individual who knows how to persevere though tough times

I am someone who will give my last dollar to help someone in need

I am not what i seem to be
