Come on turtle let’s go!!! I know you can go faster. (Familial Spastic Paraparesis)
Come on Turtle let's go!!!

Come on turtle let’s go!!!
I know you can go faster.
Come on turtle let’s go!!!
I know you're not a master.

Let's go!!! Let's go!!! Let's go!!!
no one walks with me anymore
because I walk like a turtle and can't go
as fast as everyone else anymore.

I may walk slowly like a turtle
but at least I am still walking
and not going through wheelchair hurtles
because I am unable to do anymore in my stockings.

My time is coming close to be in a wheelchair
But I will walk as long as I can still
walk even though I am week there
in the legs and among those times I have to be still.
