Surviving two cancers during this pandemic. Writing my feelings that others can relate to. I’m sure I will add on to my profile in the future.


The Big C If only you knew what I have been through, if only your eyes seen what mine have seen. My eyes saw the pain of what others felt and my ears hold secrets meant not for me. I can’t feel the pain because there is none. I can’t bring myself to touch the scars. I’m glad you don’t know what my heart feels. The anxiety, yet peace of not knowing. I feel like I’m losing control. But, I’m not in control. My heart wants to go places where I can be myself but the storm’s anchor always brings me back. My eyes hold uncried tears of hidden feelings. Am I losing my mind or is it losing me? Who can understand me? I can’t go where you want me to go, my heart says yes but my head says no. I go where nobody knows me, but it comes with me. Why do I let this define me?
