Poem by Maryum "May May" Ali Read at the 18th Parkinson's Unity Walk


 

(May 8, 2012)  We would like to repost the poem May May Ali wrote and read on the day of the 18th Parkinson's Unity Walk.  This has become somewhat of a tradition and the Unity Walk considers May May Ali our Official Unity Walk Poet. 

“Dopamine Dreams”

Everyone here let's join united with style.
Despite living with Parkinson's, we're walking 1.4 miles.
Thanks to supporters, doctors, families, and friends.
Fighting to Knock Out PD for a victorious end.
But until then hold your heads high to the sky.
Expand your knowledge to improve quality of life.
You may be slower, have rigidity or a masked face.
But never forget all of your spirits are great.
So, maintain that positive thinking to defeat thoughts that are blue.
And believe in a cure. Dopamine Dreams will come true.
