I’m sending at risk that reception’s not chilly,

I’m sorry, I’m honest, the future’s not frilly,

Stick with it, I know that the rhyming’s quite silly,

It had to be so, can’t you see?

 

It got me, because I can stand on my head,

I wear fluffy bed jackets propped up in bed,

I can carry off lipstick with no hair, she said,

It had to be so, can’t you see?

 

If you’ve half of a mind, we’ve half of a chance,

Look inside, you’re given an ultrasound glance,

Though radio’s hot it’s all an advance,

It had to be so, can’t you see?

 

If we smile we have hope and in that we live,

We’ll not try to forget, but might to forgive,

Though they want to kill you, you might just re-live,

It had to be so, can’t you see?

 

Though daft, mischief’s worth it, it has to be tried,

Life’s lighter skipping on the funnier side,

Don’t just sit back there, please enjoy the ride,

It had to be so, can’t you see?

 

If the big things are smaller the cancer is too,

So be the ridiculous aspects of you,

Turn cartwheels if that helps the giggles come through,

It had to be so, can’t you see?IMG_2026

 

‘Though the wishes and dreams now have wide gaping seams,

And I know how bad the nightmare, it screams,

It’s mad, but side splitting (tee-hee) by all means,

It had to be so, can’t you see?

 

I think a lot about physical vs mental illness and I have the mind I want, not body, but I don’t mind…  If I can laugh then I have everything!
