A Cancer Journey
Silver scars now feint and neat
Moulded contour, painted
Two surgeons craft as one
Is it not well done?
Toxins ebb and flow
Skin and marrow glow
Needing so much care
Weeping for my hair
Impaled on scarlet rage
Why me, in middle age?
Stalked by Monster Fear
The longest darkest year
“One a day will lift your
“Be sure and eat good food”
Then from the storm grew Hope
At last I knew I’d cope.
Wow Janet what a fantastic piece! This has made me feel so much better today as am securely impaled on the scarlet rage! With thanks
Thank you for the compliment. Hope it is not going too badly for you. I have go my life back (albeit under something of a shadow.) Hair grew back thicker and curly!
Creative writing as therapy.... you are spot on! For anyone in turmoil to put thoughts into the written word is the best! Well done.
