    "TIM"

    WHEN PAIN BECOMES "CHRONIC", AND "RELIEF" BECOMES SLIM,

    WE'RE POPPED FULL OF PILLS,,,,AND THEN SENT TO "TIM".

    NOW, TIM IS A "COUNSLER", HE TEACHES TECHNIQUES,

    HE HELPS US TO ACKNOWLEDGE WE'RE NOT REALLY "FREAKS".

    "TIM", OPENS OUR MINDS TO IDEAS THAT MIGHT WORK,

    WE LEAVE FEELING "HOPEFUL" AND NOT SUCH A JERK!

    AT "FIRST"I FELT "HOPE CLASS" WAS ONE OF "LIFES "JOKES,

    BUT NOW I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THE FOLKS.

    "THEY" SHARE THE SAME PROBLEMS OF "PAIN" THAT I DO,

    "FEELS GOOD", TO BE "OPEN", THEY DON'T LAUGH AT YOU!

    "TIM'S" PROUD TO SEE US,,,,,IT'S CALLING HIS BLUFF,
    "HE" PASSES OUT PAPERS,,,,,,,,,SAYING "THIS IS GOOD STUFF!"

    WE FEEL THAT "HE" CARES, AND IT'S NOT JUST AN "ACT",

    HIS WARMTH AND SINCERITY, HELPS KEEP US IN TACK.

    WE KNOW FOR A FACT,,,,,THIS PAIN WILL REMAIN,
    WITH "TIMS" SKILLFULL TRAINING,,,WE WON'T GO INSANE!

    WE'LL PRACTICE WHAT'S "TAUGHT", AND HOPE FOR THE BEST,

    WE WANT TO "SUCCEED",,,,,,AND "TIM" NEEDS THE REST!..


    IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD TO BLEND WITH THE CROWD,

    AND IF I FIT IN?, IT MAKES ME FEEL PROUD!

    WHEN "PAIN LEVEL" RISES, I'LL STOP FOR AWHILE,

    IF SOMEONE STARTS "STARING", I'LL "WAVE" AND JUST "SMILE".

    I WON'T LET IT HURT ME, IF THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND,

    WHY I'M "SLOWER" THAN THEM, AND MY TIME'S NO DEMAND!

    IF ONLY THEY KNEW,,,,,HOW MUCH COURAGE THIS TOOK!

    TO "MASTER" THIS "COMPLEX",,,WHEN THEY GIVE ME THAT "LOOK"!

    I'M A PERSON LIKE THEM,,,,,JUST A MINOR "DEFECT",

    WHICH I'M LEARNING EACH DAY , HOW TO "COPE" AND "CORRECT".

    AFTER ALL I'VE BEEN THROUGH,,,,,,,I FEEL I'VE BEEN "BLESSED",

    FOR THERE'S "OTHERS" LESS FORTUNATE", HANDICAPPED", THEY'RE ADDRESSED.

    SURE! I MOVE SLOWER, AND YES I HURT BAD!

    BUT AT LEAST I AM "WALKING", FOR "THOSE" I FEEL SAD.

    WHEN "OTHERS" ARE PRESSURED, IT'S "HARD" TO COMPETE,

    FOR "THEY" MOVE SO MUCH FASTER,,,,
        
    AND I'M "DEAD" ON MY FEET!!!.....

    THX MY FRIEND!, YOU THINK THE SAME WAY I DO!, CAREOL

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
