Get Off that Wailing Ship!

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult



Don't do a "Woe is me"
routine on me!
Don't keep saying
"I will have to be like this
the rest of my life"
Don't keep using
your damn excuses to get
to get others
to feel sorry for you..
..because you, ....
are NOT the only person
on this planet that is..
hurting from a chronic disease.
...you're still alive and..,
functioning, aren't you?
Okay then!
Keep your mouth SHUT!

I always hated
when you used your
illness as an excuse
to get people
to do your bidding!
(You thought, that nobody
noticed or had figured
that out, ..well, you
were WRONG!)
I never liked when
you thought that just
because you had
certain problems, other's
should automatically
stop dead in their
tracks to "see"
that you were "so utterly
helpless"..
.You weren't that dense ,
were you?!!!

You always acted like
you were a Princess
and the rest
had to help you...because
you "just couldn't" do
what you "needed to..."
I have always wondered
if the people
closest to you,
would someday finally ,
"figure out " that you had
"control" over
them! I never told you ,
that one person,
did know a lot more ,
than they ever admitted!
Little did you know..
.and I never said a word!

I hope someday that
you "See" what you do
NOT wish to see!
I hope someday that you
stop treating friends ,
like they are your
"personal assistants"..
.because they are
your friends,
NOT your caretakers!
I hope someday, people,
wise up to what
you are REALLY up to...
because you haven't
been honest with anybody,
even yourself!
I hope someday,
that you stop behaving so
rudely towards others
that do not know you,
and that accidently
miss the things that you
have been forced to
carry around with, the last
ten years or more.

You have to stop
and realize that not
everyone....
sees your medical issues...
and "knows"
what is expected of them,
if they were to walk
near you, and crash
into you....
learn how to
deal with it nicely,
and let it go!
Nobody in this world
is all together perfect, ,
..and not "everybody"
notices a person
with a disability,
some of the time,
and or all of the time.
...and not everybody ,
has to care,
either!
Because , trust me,
they do not!

I write this, because
I have been so angry
about these issues..
and it has really pissed
me off for many years...
.I have been told this to
my face,
from others to "get over it", , ,
and I finally did learn to
"get over it!".
..I was acting a lot like you
at one time..
..but, I got told to just stop,
and
see what is,
really happening, and
DEAL with it,
the best way that I can!
I have diabetes type two...
.I caused this, it's all my
doing...nobody else
can take the blame!
I KNOW this! I cried,
when I learned
that I had it......
but, only to
de-stress myself....
.I knew that I
might just get
this disease...
.I had been warned,
many,
many times!
I knew!.......

It's my fault!

SOmeday, maybe
you will see that
even if you are sick....
you are still HERE,
and very much
ALIVE and KICKING!
Be HAPPY
that you are still here!
Be JOYOUS!
Maybe you didn't ask
for this ..
.but, you have an illness,
now stop trying to
make others feel rotten....
Put your
chin up and
know that you are a
SURVIVOR!
and that you WILL LIVE,
and YOU WILL
do WELL!

Just so that you know....I
consider my "illness" to be
a BLESSING in disguise!
It has changed my life,
and for a good cause!
I will not eat bad
foods anymore,
I will not clog..
...my arteries up,
and hurt my heart!
DO you know
that I still have a
chance of being
in the same
sinking boat
that you are in?
Do you know that
diabetics can
die, from a stroke,
or from a
heart attack,
and alot more?!
Do you know, that I am as
"unwell" as you may be now?
But, the difference is that I
am not on a "wailing" ship,
like you have been and
may still be on!

Just learn to smile more,
think positive thoughts,
work on "happiness"
and learn to let things
go, and
don't "use" your friends,
and others...
because you are
as strong as a horse,
and so am I..
and you CAN
and WILL... LIVE!
And you WILL
be... ALRIGHT!
You don't need
that much help,
because you got
the get up and go..
and "we've "all seen it!




Author's Notes: By ladykelshan
Written Friday August 18th, 2006

This is a poem about real feelings that I have had pent up for a long while...regarding some persons that I have encountered in the past and present..and they just really don't get "IT"!

Life is Important...so they need to stop blaming everybody for their life problems, and taking people for granted...because they need to get their own garbage together....I am still working hard on my own!

I want my life to MEAN SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO ME....I want to be a good person and a person that isn't sitting on my butt, still "wailing" about how life handed me dog poop!

P.S. Years ago, I recall (on the Johnny Carson show) an older fellow that took Pidgeon poop, and he put it into some type of plastic and made "bolo-ties" I think for men and or women!
I actually thought, eww! But, ya know, it WAS an interesting thought! LOL! Now there's an interesting way to see just how you can "Change" the negative gunk in your life!!!! LOL!!!!

and thanks to Johnny C, whereever in" Bliss-land" he may be!
