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!

 Why God?

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.
