Today two years cancer free.

To celebrate from the Boardwalk, I shall read a poem I wrote in 2009 called Inspired by Trusha [my son’s wife’s sister.]


You are stage three, grade three,

Triple negative,

Bang, bang, bang,

Fear, run, hide.


From across the ocean

An email warns, no!

Beyond all that you are still you.

Yes! pant, pant, true and I calm down.


For I come from a spark with

A soul to define and to nourish me,

I have a light, a path, a destiny.

No, panic no more. I am here.
