Beautiful and Bald for #ThrowbackThursday #tbt #chemo #selfie

Beautiful and bald,

Before the eyebrows left me –

Chemo days – burning,

Tapping into grace,

The pain rarely reached my face, –

My mind, outer space.

Rockstar shirt, rockstar friends –

I dug deeply for the mend,

Hopeful, fierce, silly –

Ninja ducks, quacking –

Crack a smile in pain,

Hope to fly again.

Becoming ok

With what my body says heals,

With not liking it.

Becoming ok

With my truest of natures,

No shame; love, just being.
