Sickle Cell Awareness Month: I dedicate this to the Warriors!


I’m tired!

Tired of all the pricks and the pain

Joint pain

Back pain

Shortness of breath that makes me go insane!

Do you think I want to be here?

Trapped in bodies forever?

Eternally making them hurt so that they won’t live a normal life


Never to be at ease

Getting stuck in their blood 

My pain I feed

So sick of this

Feeling all alone like misery on a deadly kiss

So through with this

Feel like giving up at times

All alone on the hospital bed dying


I’m trying

Pain meds got me doped up!

Drugged up! 

Like crack and cocaine

Can I ever be sobered up?!

Some may not know

Personal stories of loved one of this

Sick ones with this

Babies with this

Older people with this!


I didn’t ask for this!

I didn’t ask for this to be born

A deadly sin that’s deadly pain

A forever thorn

Never going away

Pain won’t go away

Tears falls deep

Nobody can’t hear my suffering cries

All the pain I go through

Wanting a cureful kiss to end all this!

That’s right!

A cure to end all



To be in a more better state in life

No more pain

I’m a warrior still in this game

Waiting on a universal cure to shoot this to misery

I won’t let this get me down

Nor allow it to put the fear in me!

Standing strong

Looking you straight in the face

Yeah I got you now

You can’t hold me back any longer even when the meds put the pain at ease

Be gone forever 

I pray for a cure for this!

A curse

Sickle Cell Disease

In honor of Sickle Cell Awareness Month in September, this poem is dedicated to everyone globally living with this deadly disease…

This disease

Invisible as this may seem

Looking at the colored lines

Between the IV lines…

Between the pain we are in

This isn’t a curse or a deadly sin

Does our skin color makes you wonder

When our eyes are filled with weakness?

Will you stop to help us out to show your kindness and meekness?

We are still pushed to the back

Like they did Rosa Parks on the black and white bus

Let this disease have a good fight just because

Just because we wish not to be invisible any longer

To stand out and to speak out

To get attention we deserve

To march up and stand strong

Sickle Warriors

Marching in one heard

Don’t dare push us away

We are here to stay

We are not scared any longer

Our voice needs to be heard

This disease isn’t invisible

It’s very much alive

It’s not a secret

We want justice!

And for you to confide

We have a voice

Standing firm

Sickle cell it’s your turn

To fight back

Not to allow the negativity to attack

We are strong



This disease isn’t invisible

Just wait and see!
