So I was journaling today...something I should do a lot more, and I came across some poems I wrote from this past fall/winter..which was a little rough. I thought the first one was interesting in that it relates alot with my first blog post...I just never remember writing it down! I thought I would share some with you.

(unknown date)

My gut wrenching.
Yet somehow I still got my feet on the ground.
Somehow I still got a smile on my face.
People ask me how I do it...
But I can never give them a straight answer.
I would like to ask them the same thing.
I got a lot of shit they don't.
But they got a lot I don't.

So we're all fighting our own battles here.
Everyone has their own sheep to tend.
I might have a big flock,
But I've learned to tame each one with love.

(1/2/09) -i think I was feeling sick from chemo on this one.

there's a low hum outside my window.
My nails and fingertips are sore.
Under pressure of the toxicities flowing through,
destructing good and bad.
Just make it through one day at a time.

If anyone has any suggestions for the second to last line in the first poem..It kind of throws me off everytime I read it. the first time i read it i thought it was "I might have a big (something that rhymes with flock)" so now I have to change it. hahaha. =)

think of me tomorrow..I'm getting all my testing done (I am a clear white light)

Anything you write is from the soul Anni, which is a beautiful thing. You are so loved, I only wish love could cure cancer. Just know you are... (I know you've heard it a million times, but it is so true), an inspiration, to get on with life whatever it chucks at us. We are all making our way, striving to be better human beings, learning each moment, & some of us are better at it such as yourself. Keep fighting,we are with you all the way,
Love you,
Kate :-)
