My Life – By Janine Beck


Epilepsy seemed to knock at my door,
Throughout all my growing years,
From aged about four.

There has been much to learn,
This has been for me a great deal of concern
It’s Actions and Attitudes that made me feel low
It’s from these that I am now able to grow.

I learnt as time went by,
To reach for as high as the sky,
It’s through epilepsy life seemed to say “TRY”.

It was cancer that one day I awoke,
My first thought was, this is no joke!
So, much to learn on this subject too,
However, ‘anything’s possible’ – Why feel blue?

Why worry I then thought,
My life was worth more than any money could be bought
It is important when you can believe,
Life becomes the best goal to ever achieve.

So, I had a dream,
I would become a STAR that would shine and beam,
and Travel AFAR.
Life for me is really great,
As now I am feeling in much better shape.

I could show how great “life” can be,
By helping and serving one another,
What a wonderful world this would be,
When we can SHARE, CARE and HELP each other.
