I am an old soul trapped in a young body. The doctors say I will be in a wheel chair in the next couple years. My spine is that of an old woman. And my kidney is ready too fail. I started early in life. I had my son when I was seventeen. And had my daughter at eighteen. I live each day not taking anything for granted. I never thought that I, fast's runner in school; would be confined to a chair. Life is unpredictable but I won't let that stand in my way. Everyday is a gift.
