Kleine Levin Syndrome (KLS) Poem
I used to wonder Why Me? Why God? Why did this happen? What did I do to deserve Kleine Levin Syndrome (KLS)? But as the years have passed, I want you to know that I have finally understood this: Why not me? This poem was written during a time of extreme struggle!
Will I ever know?
Can you understand?
I’m too young, too young, too young
To lay in bed and lose my mind;
And watch the world pass me by.
Is there peace on earth or peace of mind?
I’m only a child, God, why can’t they be kind?
I know you conceived me to be perfect.
It is not your fault my brain got sick;
But can’t they help me soothe my pain?
Instead of blame me, judge me all in vain.
For if they really saw the truth,
They would recoil in shame.
I am your child worthy of love,
I forgive the cruelties I’ve had to bear.
I ask for healing, health, and wealth
So I may help and inspire those to follow.
Despite the pain and suffering endured too long,
I will continue to be strong.
