On The Fringe…

On The Fringe………..Illness equals exclusion…We don’t function as others…We feel we are a nuisance…An encumbrance…A reflection of what others could be…Something others do not want to see…So we become isolated…Harder becomes reaching out…All we ask is to be considered…To be invited…To be included…To have choices…Keep asking…We may have to say no…Or have to cancel…But don’t forget us…When well being is poor we withdraw more…This is us shouting…This is when we require more…We shrink away in silence…Not  wanting to impose…Awareness of others time…They have lives…They have health…The world is busy…We see this…But we are not in it…We observe…We look in from our outside place…On the periphery we view…It is not a place we want to be…It is not a place we have chosen to be…But it is the place place we find ourselves…Illness causes withdrawal…Others can lesson this…We covet inclusion not isolation…Help bring us in from our solitude On The Fringe…NL x
