Holidays and Burns

By: Michael Appleman

Holidays can be hard on everyone
A burn injury does not help us at all

Our emotions become doubled
The time can cause us to be alone

People may not understand
The live we must live

Surviving during this time of year
May cause us to fight personal fears

Is there a way survivors can share?
Sharing with other burn survivors can help us find a new path

They can feel our pain
See us for who we are

Life together can give us a chance
To move to a place we all can last
