Epilepsy Blog Relay November Post: Creativity & Epilepsy: Poem

This post is part of the Epilepsy Blog Relay™ which will run from November 1 to November 30, 2017. Follow along!

I wish that the seizures would just stop and go away,
They always wreak their havoc whenever she's trying to play.
They make their grand debut in any manner that they please,
Resulting in a watch and wait scenario that causes all to freeze.

When the random jolts and movements have finally come to an end,
We sit and stare and process all that occured trying to comprehend.
Why do they keep occuring? How is this even right? 
It doesn't matter what we do, we seem to keep on losing this futile fight.

As parents we do what we think is best and throw everything we've got,
Medications, surgeries, alternative attempts, anything to give our kids a shot.
Some relief might be temporary but it never lasts long enough,
Thankfully our kids are resilient, brave, and extremely tough.

One day there might come a time when these events will no longer occur,
Unfortunately waiting any more time for this to happen is not something we parents prefer.
In the meantime we will keep on trying to do our very best
to put up with these episodes and continue on our epilepsy halting quest.
