Once upon a time a girl ambled She scarmbled She gambled
She gamlbed on a Man But he was more than that He had the gift that made her know that She Can
She CAN Wait
Even when she can’t think she can or could She CAN stop the Cancer from spearding He would
He WOULD love Her til the end of her Days Though that time frame is debatable Fighting through so much sticky, soul searching haze
He has Glorious Hidden Horns
Those tiny mighty tusks Protect Her Those cleverly hidden cloves Defend Her That fastidiously clipped goatee (aptly named) unseat Her That expansive chest that heaves Those deep, dark chocolate Eyes moist with helpless tears
Satyrs Feel Understand the Surrel I only know how to Heal That Inarguable Resolution…
My Satyr loves me And that is Astoundung
And so it HappenedAnd it Happened to Me It Happened to We
And it Broke our Heart Small Bastard Tumor Tried to screw us over with such quiet art
That’s how it works Sneaks up and snatches your soul Makes you ache to grow old
It’s early yet this cancer fight there’s more yet Bring it on If that’s the best you can do I’ve got news for you
My Husband and I willl take you down You’re not a verb Just a measly noun
Inanimate scourge and waste of time No match for me and Him.
Your ass is Mine. Fuck you cancer we’re done with you We beat you ass though and through
Thanx fer playing our game!
I’m No Wonder Woman
Yes I have Cancer Yes I had both breasts lopped Off Thankfully No Chemo Simply…. 35 Radiation Treatments
Days a week Am almost done. Am almost done now.
Can’t catch my breath
Have to stay strong for Everyone
I am a Wonder Woman to Everyone but me.
Okay I’m done now I got It Yep…Cancer I Got it It’s not the Cancer that’s killing me It’s the Treatment I Got it I’m done with Getting It I’m done with having It
I Got it I Get it
I have It
And it will never end Get it?
Almost time to Look Back.
Haven’t finished this trip quite yet.
This is me right Now I try to stop thinking of the Why don’t try to understand the How
Just hold tight in knowing that no matter what comes next I will never stop Growing
This is how I look. Now this is Me I have found my way through a battlefield of Surreality.
