Living with Cancer: I remember how it used to be

Living with Cancer: I remember how it used to be

I remember how it used to be
When memories were alive
like a flower
in Spring.

I remember how it used to be
When words would flow
like a stream
to the sea.

I remember how it used to be
When thinking was easy
as making tea
lady grey.

I remember how it used to be
When I would chill
with friends
content.

I remember how it used to be
When Cancer was a sign
after Gemini
before Leo.

I remember how it used to be
Before my blood cells
became corrupt
broke bad.

I remember how
it used to
be.

I’m living with a rare blood cancer called Multiple Myeloma. From February to November 2013, I was on my 4th chemo treatment called Velcade, where I had weekly in-hospital injections, in addition to a variety of other pills taken to supplement my intense chemo treatment. I’m using digital media to educate others about cancer.You can read the background on my diagnosis and previous treatments on an earlier blogpost.
