Writing Through Cancer
Since knowledge of the ovarian cancer reoccurrance I have been getting weekly emails from a writing group faciliated by a writer from San Diego, California.
I recently responded to one of her prompts that involved free verse. The results below:
Cancer is a startling reality that you may not be living as long as you or others expected.
It is a sharp contrast to a teen’s sense of immortality.
It is a caution and complete abandon to live according to a higher purpose.
Cancer is a prioritizer.
It is a constant presence.
It is a consistent reminder to live each day to the fullest.
It is a reality changer.
I am reminded to trust God with all my heart, and not lean on my own understanding or even the knowledge of the doctors. I cannot lean on my fears. God is able to heal me completely. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday. Today and Tomorrow. He is the power, my strength, and the love of my life. He has and is directing my path. I am on the journey now. I continue to walk in full trust of Him who has made me.
