Just another blog

Faith, fiction and cancer stuff.

They say it’s all over now


They say it’s all over now,

Which is fab.

My hair is short

And I’ve got some scars

But I am older, wiser, tougher.


So why does it feel so hard?

I run into emotions

Like a brick wall.


And I’m down.


I should be happy

To be alive.

I should be strong.

But sometimes I just want to

Curl up into a ball.


They say it’s all over now,

Which is fab.

But actually it is the start

Of a new world.

And I’m not ready yet.



I wrote this poem from a prompt at Verily Victoria Vocalises
