Pain shatters my body

And stress fills in the cracks.

Overcome by my illness

I become blank.

           But as my blank page becomes more human

           I realize I have so much.

Happiness

In music - my rock, my soul, my anchor to my peace of mind.

                   In knowledge - the books that carry me away to the Bible who assures I am saved.

In art - I see art everywhere, through my eyes, through my camera lens, everywhere. 

             In love - to those I am close to, in the eyes of others, through the arms of my Father.

In wealth, for I have clothes on my back, a roof over my head, and food to eat.

I am not my illness

I am in control

I am happy.
