Everything is too much...

You are here
and I draw courage.

I can't show you my scars.
I can't remember what it all looked like
before this place was burned down, annihilation
aimed at just a tiny cell, drew a bigger path to
form a fire wall around the burning house.

I'm dying to tell you everything.
Perhaps, when you are stronger, and you
see your own house threatened with fire,
I will tell you everything so you can
tell me everything too.

I'm hoping that you'll be fine, Statistically you surely have a really good chance of getting over this though the treatment makes you feel ill for a while.
The poem is potent and brings back memories of my ordeal with chemo and radiation.
Keep trekking... it's a difficult path but there's light at the end of it.
Hugs, Maggie x

Strong pure words. I hope your treatments are completely successful, dear blog friend.

Heartfelt hugs.
Too much is an overwhelming place.

Marty Damon said...

I've just heard from a friend in a similar situation. Too many are experiencing this.
I've been down some of the road you're traveling and I hope that you come to an equally successful conclusion.

I am a survivor too.
It does get better, really, truly, it does.

Good luck.

Oh my. I'd like to say that through torment comes strength, and I truly believe that, but day to day can be hard. I wish the best or you.

It is good for you to know that you are not alone, and that one day you will be able to easily talk about this war of biology and chemistry. I have 3 scars won in the battle. *meh* If I only had the three I would most likely conclude that I lived a fairly mundane life. Be Well! Be as strong in your mind and heart as you are in your character Rosaria!

Just caught up with your blog, and so sorry to the news about your health. Sending blessings of love to you, Rosaria. Vx

I know you through blogs and Facebook. I wish we were not on opposite coasts. My women's spiritual singing circle at my Unitarian meeting house will be adding a name to our list for healing, for light. And you will be in my thoughts in yet another way... one I wish were not necessary. Love and light, Rosaria.

I am so behind with my friends in the blogging world. I bought a new computer just before leaving for India but it is malfunctioning & the place I am staying doesn't have internet. I am having to rely on my smart phone for everything. It seems I need to go to your blog & catch u, Rosaria. At any rate, I am sending loving thoughts your way.

I can't find the words to send to make it all go away because there aren't any. Please know I'm praying for you and hope this will be over soon and good health will follow. Take care dear Rosaria.

Amanda Summer said...

Powerful words, Rosaria. Who was it who said, write it out, write it all out....

Saying a prayer for you and sending love,
