I WILL NOT SELL MY SOUL TODAY

I’ve done some amazing writing over the last few days I am so grateful for the new perspective and consciousness.

I WILL NOT SELL MY SOUL TODAY

I will not sell my soul today
I won’t sign on the dotted line
you offer riches wealth and fame
And in return, you will have control my mind

I signed a contract with God long ago
He offered me courage through strife
He protects my soul, and as I grow wiser
I’ll have the power to turn the darkness into light

I will not sell my soul today
And you will not change my course
I am free despite my isolation
And I live life without remorse…..

LABELS 

It takes one to put a label on

From then on more will wonder

It takes one to tear lives upside down

From there on many more will blunder 

It takes one to start a war with words

From there on you will not get passed

Because what others read, and what others see

Will only make your nightmare last

 

It takes one to put a label on

It takes one to turn the rest away

With just a label and with just a word

No one else will hear what you have to say…

 After my misdiagnosis, the labels began.  Once a new doctor receives a file with these labels, they shut down and won’t look past the medical mess that was started…I hope that we redefine how we label things and people.  We are more than a “disability.”
