POEMS









I dedicate the verses here

to all those people I hold dear.

For whether they’ve proved weak or strong,

all helped to move my life along.


Each person had an ostomy

and they stand tall because to me,

these are people I admire

and to whom I can aspire.


By what they tell us we can tell

that they’ve had other things as well

like cancer, Crohn’s and IBS,

yet they can still cope with the stress.


Most ‘normal’ people cannot know

the ins and outs of our aggro.

But those who’ve been recipients

are those with most experience.


Because of all that they’ve been through,

they are the ones who really knew,

and they’re the ones who thought they ought

to give to others their support.


So I feel there is no doubt,

these people know what they’re about,

and there could not be any price

that I would put on their advice.


When I first had my ostomy,

it’s them were glad to share with me.

So I was not left on my own

to be bereft with this unknown.


So they deserve this dedication

for in spite of medication,

they nonetheless discussed with us,

so we progressed with much less fuss.
