Each of Us

Next Tuesday

I step in front a group of women

with cancer

we all have the potential for this plague

you and I

we are not so different

It’s environment, genetics, lifestyle choices

And like it or not, it’s

with us

 

It, like other aspects of life, is petrifying

A sea of unknown

A gargantuan rift in the surface of what we thought we knew life to be like

An overwhelmt of fear and stress, worry and anger

 

And I will step in front of them to say

“But life is greater than that which is

petrifying

unknown

rift rife with

overwhelmt

 

“It is meant for joy

Loving what’s ‘right’ with you – that which is all of you

Noticing how you feel, and how to feel better

Celebrating that you are a miracle, in this moment, yes, you

Perfect you.

Because there isn’t an answer for tomorrow we can define

today”

 

We have this moment

The way the spine feels as hips circle counter-clockwise, then reverse

The way a smile lifts with a familiar song

The way it feels to dance, really dance to a rhythm

We choose health with each action or inaction

To meditate

To co-create

To believe

To hope

To feel

To be

All that we are. Not we collectively, each of us.

Each of us

Have this potential
