I Was Born This Way - My Diagnosis Of a Horseshoe Kidney

It's Just Me


©2012 LaDena Campbell

Things are a little scary right now

Although I know whatever will be will be

I was born with a birth defect

That’s coming back to haunt me

When I was a kid I knew I was different

Though no one could see it on the outside

I was born with a horseshoe kidney

Have lived with a lifelong pain in my side

It can be a simple thing

Can cause no problems ever

But if I am hit in just the right spot

My connecting kidneys can sever

If this happens I will need a new kidney

Or I could die right there on the spot

This doesn’t bother me one little bit

It just scares me a whole lot

I went to the doctor last week

To see why I was in so much pain

I found that I had a blockage

That was so much to blame

Sometimes it hurts to go to the bathroom

I have to sit and try and try

It almost makes me double over

It makes me just want to cry

I had a temporary stint put in

To see if it would fix me

Now I may have to have major surgery

Just so that I can go pee

      I am so sorry that you must live with such pain. I will be praying for you that the God of all comfort will comfort you with His peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding, and that He relieve you of your distress. It will be so great that day when we all get our new bodies; when there will be no more pain; no more suffering; no sorrow and no more tears shed. In His Love, Faith Reaper
