Letter to My Bone Disease

Dear, Osteogenesis Impefecta

All my life, you break me

You crack, shatter, compund, and fracture my life.

I hated you, hours of surgery, years of hurt, a lifetime of scars.

Then, you changed me

For the better

I gained a new perspective.

Yes you hurt me, but you give me strength

Strength to overcome, to adapt,

I think now, about those who have it worse than me,

Those with cancer, leukemia, AIDS, multiple sclerosis

I am thankful

It could always be worse

I am thankful

Thankful for my life, for my health

Though it may be hard, I will Overcome.
