This is the story I nearly left last
Hard to be honest the future the past
Caught up in confusion with no where to run
Still everyone thinks I’m the positive one
I thought I was crazy could not work it out
In all of my madness my family were in doubt
Cos strength and hard work was all that they see
Til cancer took over it was strangling me
A mind that’s erupting all over the place
So frightened of living life’s natural ways
I took out my pen and turned to my pad
Release from myself life wasn’t so bad
Found strength in my strength
and life in my life
From a child to a woman a mother and wife
I am my own strength I am my own life
For the first time in forever
Living with cancer has changed my whole mind
I don’t want to be strong I don’t want to fight
I just want to go back to living my normal best life
So take time and remember to go check yourself. out
Or it might be your story I’m writing about
Hello @Sandy69, thank you for sharing this poem with us! Did you write it yourself? It's very powerful. Poetry is such a wonderful outlet to share about what we're going through! Did you know that there's even a form of therapy (called poetry therapy) that uses written and spoken word to promote mental well-being? If you don't mind, I'll tag some other members who may not have seen your poem yet.
Hi everyone, how are you doing? Have you had the chance to read Sandy69's poem? What do you think? Does poetry or other forms of writing or expression help you process what you're feeling or even help you to feel better?
