Dread and worry fill my heart
I’m in a hurry to hear the results
But I have hours to go before I hear
News that may change my life forever.
Is it cancer or some disease
That plagues me now below my knees?
I just had a cyst removed
Three weeks ago, and I’m still bruised
The pain has not yet gone away
I hope forever it will not stay
Minutes pass and I fill the time
Contemplating my next rhyme
And what the doctor will tell me tomorrow morning…
*I wrote this the night before I received some “bad” news about my health from my doctor, last month. He’s now sending me to a specialist. Hopefully what I have is not that serious.
Keeping my fingers crossed!
