As I muse about resentment,
I’m confused about presentment.
What was first, the fact or act
or the burst as I react?
Do those daft things I resent
come ‘fore or aft some main event?
Or might the feeling creep about
for the right time to leap right out?
When someone’s life just comes amiss,
then anyone must resent this.
Am I resenting my body
presenting me my ostomy?
A lot of my resentment then
was got from discontentment, when
my colon needed attention
and the surgeon’s intervention.
You could say that the surgeon’s knife
took away my normal life.
And what was sent to me instead,
left resentment in my head.
I resent that I was ill,
and disenchantment is there still.
The cost to me I always claim
was that the ostomy’s to blame.
But as the years have passed on by,
I have now cast a different eye
on those worst things that got to me
when I first got my ostomy.
I’ve had a chance to contemplate,
to glance again and ruminate.
my resentment’s disappeared.
