The Power of Words

This summer I am working on the fourth revision of a diary I keep while going through cancer. Each day I will share one rewritten entry. My goal is to have the fourth rough draft completed by August 15th. All rights reserved, but feedback welcome.:)


Day Sixty Three
The Power of Words
Many have asked
how have I
over come so many
of my life’s obstacles?

Born with Speineabifida,
overcoming low self esteem,
now diagnosed with cancer
tragedy is my life’s theme.

I will tell you my secrete
the power of words,
words of encouragement
now it may sound absurd

I have coach inside of me
always cheering me on
and don’t forget those around me
that I rely upon:

You can do it!
We’re here for you!
You are loved
and beautiful!

Words make life worth living
give purpose and drive
that’s the mystery
that keeps me alive.

When we share words
we share hope, there of
making things easier
it’s the voice of love.
