Planets and Tumors

Planets and Tumors Empty Planets and Tumors

Post  mikeschultz on Sun Feb 16 2014, 12:28

Pluto is a planet, as
It is, and it isn’t,
And now it’s so much more,
A bearer of truth,
I’m not alone in this solar system.

In July of next year (2015),
A fast fly by,
And we shall see what there is
To see, and to believe,
Wonderful images before unseeable.

The cancers are dark.
Now I must survive the treatments.
Infections and illnesses
Run wild with few white blood cells.
Planets and tumors,

Both unseen, and largely unknown,
With beauty and wonder waiting,
How is it we hope to survive?
I do, for I dare.
I must, at least for a while longer.

How else might I write
Of eradicating the tumors and
Celebrating a distant planet emerging
From behind its own shadow,
As we shall from the shadow of Cancer?


Michael Schultz ©️ February 6, 2014 (1424)


Thank you for your prayers. Keep ‘em comin’.
They help boost the immune system.
I have just four chemo treatments remaining.

Mike
