33 Days

Posted by on Aug 12, 2012 in 2012, Choken Word

A mountain to climb.
Time to count.
Checking days off a list.
Monday through Friday.
Monday through Friday.
Head strapped to table.
Your mask of fate.
Your brain is baked.
You hope there are no mistakes.

Chemo is taken by pill.
Lack of energy takes your will.
Steroids keep brain from swelling.
Keep skull from pressing.
Only so much room to grow.
Only so much time to know.
This will be over soon.

All trials.
All tests.
Will give you time to bless.
Your life and family.
To have more time here, now.
Many more MRIs to come.
33 days on the table soon done.
