Ode to Epilepsy | June 1, 2020

It strikes my head a hundred times…

It strikes my soul as many…

It strikes each thought I have…

It strikes my sense and sensibility...

It strikes my consciousness…

It strikes my confidence…

It strikes all that I believe in…

It leaves my heart at sea…

What is this thing called epilepsy?


  1. It strikes like a bolt of lightning
    Causing a storm that is frightening.

  2. Beautifully and poignantly said, Marlyn.

  3. It leaves me wondering how I got here and why I’m so far from home.

  4. Well, at least you have us for company.

    Although, I know that’s not what you’re talking about.

  5. Having seizures is no rhyming game.
    Those who ignore some of us, have no shame.
