When Life Gives you a Chronic Illness

When life gives you a chronic illness

It teaches you to enjoy every moment

It shows you the beauty in the little things

Not just the bigger picture

When life gives you a chronic illness

You learn nothing is as it seems

You smile in the face of adversity

And even in the face of pain

When life gives you a chronic illness

You realise the things that are important to you

Are not what you thought they were

And you take it in your stride

When life gives you a chronic illness

You learn it’s doesn’t mean the end

You are strong enough to live with it

To survive and succeed despite it

When life gives you a chronic illness

You see the darkness in the world

But you also see the beauty in it

And you learn to see the good in every day
