Poem by Maryum "May May" Ali read at the April 26, 2008 Parkinson's Unity Walk

May May Ali
Dopamine Dreams

Parkinsonians here are surviving with style
Despite tremors and shakes, you’re walking 2 miles

Supportive doctors, family and friends
In a fight to knock out PD for a victorious end

But until then, hold your head up high
Expand your knowledge to improve quality of life

You may be slower, have rigidity, or a masked face
But never forget that your spirit is great!

So keep positive thoughts to wash away any blues
Believe that one day your dopamine dreams will come true
