Valerie Marquez

You knock me down
But yet I rise
I smile through all adversities
Even though I know 
We have a constant battle
If not my head, my back, my shoulders,
My legs, my joints…
You are there
Medication’s great for a while
It wears off
And we start the roller coaster ride
All over again
I can’t let you, get the better of me! 
Always believing 
Tomorrow will be better than today
Learning and understanding 
My limitations
Through the white knuckle rides
Of pain
I still rise 
With a smile
