Luekemia destripar cancer

occurs

Strap on your best face

and put forth

some integrity

Find a shadow to veil in

Put on a robe and let go

an excruciating pain exists inside

So walk through the door

of hysteria and joy

  5. >A greek play, mask and robe and flowing veil. The pain inside can be behind any mask. I like: put forth some integrity. That's advice you don't have to give yourself.

  6. >Barb, I like what you got from this poemI almost was getting the feeling that some people thought of it as an autobiography which it is not of course!Pamela

  9. >GautamiI am glad u found it! Thanks for that!Pamela

  10. >Pamela, I was glad to read in the comments that this is not autobiographical. I had wondered. You wrote about the subject from within though, as if you truly knew. What I think about most at the moment is combining hysteria with joy. At first it seemed an improbably combination, but the more I thought about it…….. Nice work!
