Choosing Visibility

As a writer, I am used to ink
This substance conveys the things I think
Both within a printer and a pen
From the comfort of my writing den.

But today I will meet ink anew
My thoughts drawn into my first tattoo
There can be no progress without pain
Symbolic meaning that is engrained.

It seems somewhat like a code to me
My own hieroglyphs for all to see
It represents all that makes me strong
Which will motivate me to go on.

The tattoo will prompt dedication
Not to forget my medication
And it will show that there is no shame
For Parkinson’s Disease to be named.

In some ways just like being branded
This honest mode for being candid
The image enables all to see
This major part of my life story.
