So, this is a little dumb but I just found a poem I wrote a couple days before my first chemo treatment on March 17th. Figured someone out there might like it.



"C"

by Elizabeth Verni 3/14/06



C

Can't say it
Crisp and harsh
Ca- Ca-
Like candy
or carousel
But not as nice
or fun
Ca-
Like canadian
but not as friendly
but always over you like
a
big
looming
country
Ca-
Can't talk about it
or else the tears
D
R
I
P
Not from your eyes
but others
Big, wet, soul-hurt tears

BUT:

Ca-
Can do it
Can beat it
CAN BE STRONG!

Can wear the C like
a badge of hope
Like a beacon of light
Like a trophy

A trophy to signify pain
yet brilliance.

The C word:
Not nearly as evil
as it may seem.
