From Parkinson’s to a Poet
As I walk this journey, I may stumble and fall.
I may even freeze at times or have no expression at all.
I continue to shake, rattle, and roll,
But there will always be peace way down in my soul.
Life’s journey is never without obstacles, and for one woman diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, God’s steadying hand and her faith in his guidance were the encouragement she needed to confront her life’s battles and face the truth—that while life can have its share of tears, illness, and death, it can also fill our souls with love, laughter, faith, and family.
In From Parkinson’s to a Poet, author and poet Melody Eddins shares her observations about life and creation, and she especially opens a window into her experiences living with Parkinson’s disease. With both touching and humorous poetry, Melody introduces the characters and events in her life that inspired her to recover and heal with faith and dedication. And although there will be tears, Melody invites everyone to both laugh and cry along with her through her inspirational, faithful journey.
