A sinister visitor unknown to doctors
Lying dormant inside of her insides,
A parasite gaining nourishment from her body
Dividing and infiltrating cell after cell
Playing its own game of hide and seek.
Wreaking havoc and crippling pain
The mutation sails through her blood
Dictating how she will live her life
Denying what was once promised her,
Stealing the best years of her remaining life.
Feeding off her organs as if at a buffet
Sampling from this one and that
Stuffing its nameless face
with all that it can consume.
Accepting eradication is impossible
Radiation and chemotherapy
Are but a mere slumber to the beast
Simply slowing down its destruction
With no plans to vacate the premises.
Hope is but a fool’s illusion
Wasting time that can’t be turned back
Spending energy that is lost forever
Fighting what you cannot win,
Wishing for just a little more time.

My soul’s desire has always been to create something from nothing. To sit with a blank screen and craft my stories, poetry and anything that tickles my fancy, from my own unique point of view.
As I thought about what I wanted to create and how I would present it to the world, I decided this site was a platform where I could share my musings and talents. My desire is to connect with others who share my affinity for everyday humor, while navigating through life’s joys and challenges.
I am not a professional writer but I am interested in sharing my inspirations and craziness that is my life as a wannabe writer, poet, storyteller, student, mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend.
My hope is that in sharing my unique perspective on my own experiences, I will in turn touch someone’s life; whether through laughter or tears.
We are all the same, seeking connections and a place to fit in. I welcome all to be inspired and to be inspiring.
