Purpose

image

Someone asked me yesterday if I was sure my medical issues were caused by Agent Orange.
I had to laugh inside.
My father’s direct exposure to the herbicidal warfare chemical known as Agent Orange had been sprayed in his mouth directly more than once while installing telecommunication lines in the brush while it was being sprayed. He died a painful and debilitating death.

I have a mutated gene as a direct result from that. I passed that gene to my son.

I have to say at first I was shocked to be asked such a ignorant question.
But the facts are.

#1) The government does NOT want to take responsibility for children of war.
#2) They even deny many Veteran’s compensation suffering from exposure to Agent Orange.
#3) I indeed do have a gene mutation that was found accidentally by my dermatologist.
#4) I am septic from myself
#5) I am even allergic to dead skin cells

I can make this list go on and on. The fact of the matter is.

“I am a  government experiment.”

“I am a child of warfare.”

“I am not alone.”

I could have said some very unpleasant things. But that is not who I am.
I am a college educated individual that got dealt a dirty hand.

Due to this, yes I am sick. Thousands more are as well.
The point?

I want to spread awareness. Not just for me! Yes, we indeed do have multiple appointments a day several days a week.
I need to be able to get my son and I back and forth to our appointments.
I DO NOT want to stop living just because I have good days and bad days, on a bad day I would love to go skydiving!

Down or not, I AM ALIVE, WE ARE ALIVE! I love life, I love living.

This has been ignored for too long and it needs to stop now.

Life is hard, but I love it. Spiritually I am strong, I am a warrior.
Nothing is free and I take nothing for granted.
Without challenge where would I be?

Growing up, yes, I had “special needs” but my parents made sure I never let it stop me from living. But push me to be a better me.

I want the world to know. Disabilities is a label not a person.
I may have special needs, others have even more!
I count my blessings daily, I am grateful for life, grass, trees, family, friends, the fact that there is beauty in all, God is in all.

Bound

image

Bound together with the
Wings of time;
Bound forever,
Nothing and none
Ever in mind;

You are my rock
When I can not stand;

You are my rock
Even when I feel
Like sand;

When ever parted,
You are still there,
When ever parted,
You are still
Here;

Everywhere I look,
Anywhere I go,
I only see you;

I hear you
Singing,
I hear the
beat
Of
The drum;

I am always
Happy,
I know we
Are one;

Bound together in a sacred way,
Bound together by creator,
This is the true and natural way.

Papers here
And
Papers there;

Meaningless.
Torn.
Forgotten.

This is something we will never be.

As long as our women remain the heartbeat of our Nations we will be “Idle no More”

Parting Ways

image

Now the time has come.
He must go again.
Parting ways are hard;

It will be OK again.
I am a warrior,
Since birth,
when all
Of this begin;

I am strong as iron,
But careful not to
Get so hot I burn;

I do not like to hurt
Others;
As some
do not care;
I am honorable and
Strong.
I will take
And
I will make
Us stand.

Well roll at least.
And stand when I can.

It’s my little man
That keeps me
Strong;

I will always fight
For what is right,
What is true,
What is just,
I am my father’s
Daughter;

I have always been
A warrior;
I will always be
a warrior;

I am me.
I am Dawn Piercy.
