POEMS









Fifty/fifty was my chance

of coming through the op.

It was a chance, I had to take

to cause the pain to stop.


So already I am 'one in two',

but the numbers don't end there.

I've looked at all the other odds

and thought that I would share.


One in every six hundred

will live life with a bag.

For some of them it's easy,

but for others it's a drag.


One in every three of us

will sometimes get a leak.

Hopefully you can cut your odds,

just give your bag a tweak.


100%.  That's all of us

will have a fear of gas.

Try not to let it worry you,

you know that it will pass.


One in two colostomies

are reversed before too long.

To say that is an easy choice

is usually quite wrong.


I may be one in fifty

but I really want to say.

My stoma makes my life so good, 

I've decided he must stay.


So when you're having a bad day 

as most of us will do.

Just add up all the numbers

and I think you'll find it's true.


Live life to the full each day,

gain confidence you've lacked.

We're 'one in a million' people 

and we should be proud of that.
