A POEM: — anon·y·mous·ly SENT TO ME

Three Little Letters
In Honor of Robert J Cram

A life altering change at a blink of an eye,
a debilitating disease can leave you wondering “Why”?

Weakness and Strength is the bodies constant fight,
no cure to the illness leaves a future un-bright.

Speaking with no words is a challenge to conquest,
faith and patience is what does it best.

Courage and Hope is your medication for pain,
time is the enemy with nothing to gain.

Day to day struggles makes it difficult to see,
that God has a plan and knows what’s best for me.

Education and awareness is priority no less,
with hopes to finding a cure and strike out ALS.
