Share Your Story

by Chuck Pew

I look OK, so nothing is wrong
No one sees the shaking that embarrasses me so.
They do not see the pain that is to move.
They may wonder why Iím lazy and slow.

But

I look OK, so nothing is wrong
You donít feel the stiffness of this body
To you the world is not tilted
You can still move at full speed

Yet

I look OK, so nothing is wrong
Inside the darkness is killing me
The anger is eating me
Your indifference shames me

Still

I look OK, so nothing is wrong
I have my hair...no chemo here
I have my limbs, shaky they may be
My face maybe blank, but Iím in here

Well

I look OK, so nothing is wrong
I hide my disease, because you donít understand
I fear the label of fraud and foul
I donít know why itís my Parky life

To you

I look OK, so nothing is wrong.
