An Uphill Climb

So many people face several challenges during their lifetime. Here is a poem I wrote about so far the most difficult challenge I have faced.

An Uphill Climb

My legs don't work like they should,
I'm not feeling as good as I could
You tell me if you could help you would,
But we both know it's not possible
Even when you're trying to be unstoppable.

The doctors say it's gonna be an uphill climb
But if I work hard it will slow down the time,
That it takes before I can't walk,
That's why I need you here just to talk.

You say you understand what I'm going through,
But really, how could you?
When you've never been in this position;
I'm not trying to block out your optimism,
But it's not the same as my intuition.

You've got nowhere to go but up that hill. Go on. The glorious view on the top awaits you.

My legs don't work like they should,
I do not understand?

Yeah, don't you just hate it when people say they understand?
But, sometimes, they do understand.
Hang in there.

And the top of one hill is just the bottom of another rise. Good expression of your feelings.
