My Attitude


why do people annoy me
when they've been told to shut up
yet they continue on talking
on subjects I just don't care
or planning before I am ready
or deciding before planing  is done
I want to manage my Parkinson's
to feel better then I do tonight
I want their help coping
on days I simply feel like shit
Let's get some perspective folks
I'm dealing with my life and my death
and these trivial things of the  living
issues not urgent nor important
can wait and wait and wait
then  maybe never happen.......
I have little interest trivialities
I am interested in God, my disease 
my life and someday my death
I want to work in my shop
to show I can fight Parkinson's 
everything else is secondary
or maybe even less
We all know I will loose this battle
but help me keep my focus
as I am lowered into its abyss

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
