I HAVE A FIGHT ON MY HANDS:
Yesterday was not a good day,
That I was soon to learn.
For discrimination has reared it's ugly head.
Again it's my turn.
I, for thirty four years have had Epilepsy,
I have led a "Normal Life."
Although these past few years.
Have suffered tears and strife.
I saw a new doctor yesterday,
My medication running low.
He said he wouldn't give me anymore,
Said at my age I shouldn't need it so.
Well when one suffers a seizure
Whilst in or out of doors.
Have I to remain "A prisioner"
Just sat looking at the floor indoors?
I want my life back,
Is that too much to ask?
I am coming up againts discrimination,
Against my age and illness which is a losing task.
So today I will continue,
To set the record straight.
That Epilepsy and age,
Here in the UK the medics love to hate.
I will seek professional advice,
Maybe go public, who knows?
Show the world I am NOT WORTHLESS.
But am a person with a heart from my head to toes.
