Chris Dudley Camp
A poem by Jordan Stratton

I was having so much fun

But my mom said I had to go to the doctor

On that cold, winter's night

That one sentence stopped all my laughter


The tests came back positive 

And my face turned white

That week I spent and suffered through

Many sleepless nights


Will I die

 I began to fear 

I wanted something comforting

To bring me near


As for an upside

 I searched for one in vain

So my tears sparkled 

Like a glistening rain


People tried to comfort

People tried to care

But I keep on thinking

This is not fair



Going up and down 

They were turning

 My whole life around


I tried and tried

With all my might 

But I just couldn't seem

 To get it right


I heard about a camp 

That was for athletics

Heaven for a boy

Plus it was completely for diabetics


The camp brings friends

From all around

East and west

North and south


When I get there

 I have no fear

A smile breaks

From ear to ear


When I am there

 I can see

That I can be anything

 I want to be


No fear no pain

All that gone

When I go to camp

In Oregon


Sometimes I ask God

 Why he put me in this situation

But when at camp 

I can throw away all that devastation


God has given all of us

 A purpose in this life 

And this camp has given me

Something that makes me fight


I have the best time at this camp

 It is the best destination

And I want to send a big THANK YOU

To the Chris Dudley Camp Organization
