Mind Fuck—By Terri Shaffer

A follow up appointment leads into the words “you have a little bit of cancer”

Silence, deflation of self, wondering of mind, emotional floodgate has opened

Fear sets in and mortality is faced

Hope is given, options are plentiful

Everything will be all-right; the fight for life has begun

The start is strong and aggressive

Multiple surgeries, a lot of pain, waterfall of tears released

Proactive steps are taken to lessen the odds of return

Hope sets in and the belief of beating the odds are near

Life continues and the struggle becomes silent and internal

What if’s fester, all around and maintaining a smile becomes key

Enjoying the little things in life lifts the soul to a new level

The words are spoken “you are cancer free”

A deep exhalation and built up anxiety is released from the whole body

Calmness settles in and a continuation of life occurs

Years go by and all before are just distant memories of a bad dream

 

A consistent cough settles in, “chronic bronchitis is diagnosed”

Until one day a simple image is taken

The dreaded words are spoken once again “you have cancer”

All is deflated and the fear and sadness yet returns

How? … Why?

So much confusion and anger battled within

Preparing for the fight, once again occurs

More tests, scans, treatments

Sickness takes over every part of the body, yet the desire to live is strong

Pain thresholds and tolerance levels are tested beyond

Confusion, fear and sadness try to root in

But Love and Hope carry you now

Preserving the moments, memories and energy is key

It is not time, there is more to do

The emotional battle is endless-keeping positive is imperative

 

The reflection in the mirror tells that the end is near

How can this be, how did it come to this

Those all around are full of life, zest, fire

Yet this feeling is within, the body does not respond

Reflection of self and release of faith occurs

An acceptance of what will be will be

Calmness takes over

Surrounded by the love of all, the body gives way

The mind releases the life force energy

And the soul ascends

Family is left behind

A numbing and emptiness surrounds all—that no words can describe
