This woman and her blog is one of the most inspiring that I read. Her positivity and strength shines through. And this poem is amazing.

the dirty "c" word

I haven’t posted in a while — Sorry about that. I have found that I just want some time for myself these last weeks… Chemo starts on Tuesday the 15th. What follows is a poem that I wrote about it:

 

~~ ALONE IN THE DARK ~~

 

Alone in the dark – candles burning…

Thoughts spinning – mind churning –

Barely holding panic at bay…

Fighting to keep the fear away.

 

Toxins running through the bloodstream…

Poisons that heal – or so it may seem –

Designed to kill the deadly Beast…

Soaking up knowledge – wishing the research wrong –

Determined to become a positive statistic…

Yet centered enough to remain realistic.

 

Alone in the dark – candles burning…

Life before Cancer – so strong a yearning –

One day, one…
