Interesting how although I am receiving
I am regaining energy!
Yes, in the later part of the day
after radiation in the early afternoon
I experience being tired.
This feels like a normal tiredness
not at all resembling
the heavy feeling that
During the weeks after chemo
I felt a heavy weight, as heavy as lead,
permeating the center of my being
and all my cells sinking into
the heaviness at my core.
I believe I was in another dimension
during that time.
Now, I feel the energy of LIFE
pulsing in my mind, my heart,
the center of my being.
I am GRATEFUL for the total experience
of meeting the challenge
for I know it brought me to places
I have never before known.
Now, I feel even more CONNECTED
to people, PEACEFUL within,
PATIENT as I witness and allow
the unfolding of life.
TO BE ALIVE!
