It comes in and invades my life- so I fight.
Threatening to steal more than my daughters life -so I fight.
Creeping in to bring distance and disconnection into our entire family structure- so I fight.
I could lose it all- so I fight.
In the silence- I fight.
In all the uncertainty, the questioning- I fight.
In the darkness, amidst the roaring in my head- I fight.
I fight- to be strong, to have courage, to make it work, this new way of life with cancer on board. To be for my husband, to be for my daughter, to be for my children, to be for all those who need me to be- I fight. I fight to stay sweet, to remain positive, to not snap at the children, to be the mother, the wife, the Christian...... God wants me to be. I fight to be. I fight.
