Much of my poetry was written on my D-days as a kind of therapy, you might say, and are about my experiences with brain cancer and it's treatments. I began writing poetry when I got to work early one day and was in the office all alone and looking out my window, I began by writing my thoughts as I was due for my annual review that day. There was just a profound peace in the stillness and quiet of the morning with no one there and feelings of dread because I knew it wouldn't last long because soon the office would be filled with people talking and phones ringing and other noises. Even the traffic below, in the rain, seemed as silent and peaceful.
Many of my poems are taken from specific events and times in my life that are unrelated to cancer.
Poetry is a personal type of writing and is often times difficult for someone else to appreciate another person's poetry, so I understand if you don't appreciate it - but if a poem rings true or is something with which you can identify with, please leave a comment in the comments section.
