POEMS









When once upon a normal life,

then I could run and fun was rife.

I took for granted all the things

I thought a normal life just brings.


Awakened at the break of day,

I’d face the world of work and play.

There was no case to ask me why,

my pace of life was do or die.


I would climb the mountains high

and feel that I could touch the sky.

To view the world from up above,

as it unfurls to turtle doves.


And nothing really bothered me

until I had my ostomy.

Long gone’s the fountain of desire

to climb up mountains to be higher.


Most people simply do not know,

how much to life itself they owe.

That is until that life is taken,

then they cannot be mistaken.


When things were going well for me,

I did not think to stop and see,

that everything may change for me,

when once I had an ostomy.


I used to live fantastically,

then suddenly, dramatically

to a stoma I am bound

and this has turned my life around.


There was a day when I would say,

let’s pack our bags and holiday.

But with this bag stuck on my side,

I now must muck around inside.
