So I was challenged to write a poem. I barely consider myself a writer so poetry, not so much. But anyway I did it and here it is. Try not to laugh too hard. I'll let you all know if Hallmark calls.
I was 38 years old Never sicker than a cold Found a bump, a lump a spot, Cancer dear is what you've got Off with the boobs My knees were shakin' Out with the tubes No more babies I'm makin' 12 Chemos were an awful slap Radiation a brutal zap Then I learned I had sisters, Mothers, fathers, Miss and Misters All who had the the same damn thing Fighting harder than anything So I'll keep blogging about cancer Until we have a friggin' answer
So have you got one? Why not leave a poem in the comments for everyone else to read?
