Disease, disease you crept into my life when I was nine
Disease, disease you laughed when they called you benign
Disease, disease you mocked me when I believed your lies
But disease, disease she saw the truth burning behind your eyes
Still disease, disease you sent a thousand daggers all my way
Still disease, disease you left me dripping blood each hospitalised day
Still disease, disease you played tricks on my mind for your final blow
But disease, disease, you failed to realise you still have one last foe
Listen disease, disease after eleven years it has come down to this
Listen disease, disease after all your hits from your blazing fists
Listen disease, disease, you may have picked on a helpless son
But you keep on forgetting that you have one weakness, my mum.
Saturday 19th May 2018 marks ‘World Inflammatory Bowel Disease 2018’.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which affects 300,000 people in the United Kingdom and millions more worldwide.
I have Crohn’s disease. Through the good times and the bad, my mum has always been there. Thank you Mum and thank you for your support too.
