Please Don't Take Me Away

Life is funny sometimes. Especially when all of our familiarities go in the direction of the wind.

Life gives you a sentence with no option to defend.

I pray that my mind can accept and perceive the diagnosis that is near.

I know that we all are going to die some day but I have so much to live for while I’m here.

Please don’t take me away. I need to watch my boys grow.

If I leave now I will have grandchildren that I will never get to know.

I don’t even know myself.

Please give me life because I am not ready for death.

Don’t break my family’s heart.

Please don’t pull us apart.

Being here in spirit is not how I want to be.

I want to feel, react…I don’t want to be just a memory.

If I am diagnosed, I will be strong and I will work to survive.

I want to have hope and know that I have lived while I am alive.

If this lump in my breast develops into something beyond my control.

Let me live long enough for my husband and I to grow old.

No, it's true. They found a lump. I am trying to process this in my mind. I want to be positive but I am letting my thoughts get the best of me.

I hope this is fiction, Sassy?
