The Bugs Crawl In

The Bugs Crawl in; infest my brain;

I psychically try to force them out: Let my power not be in vain;

It wanders through my peace of mind;

Destroying all sense of stability in-kind;

These pesty killers grow and grow, but blind to the naked eye you see;

They rot stability, connection, love, time-together: Families pay an enormous fee;

We try to stay strong, live like we will die;

At times we concede, the fear tunnels in, it's all a lie;

Dance, sing, cry, share, connect, love, write to stay sane;

Love is all we have, part of loving is the deep dark ugly pain;

At Times, my fear keeps my mind in a panic;

I will try for her not to act frantic;

I refuse to let these disdainful buggers invade my space;

I will keep my chin up for Linda, put on a brave face;

For sisterhood is a gift from the lord on high;

there are moments I crumble, stumble and cry;

Please God don't let my twin sister die!!!

Keep my presence uplifted, inspired and tall;

In honor of my lovely twinner I must not fall

      wow , , ,just visited your sis, read her poem and commented, now to read this poem and thread her poem means something different, , ,thank you for sharing your "self" that part of you, which is your "me" shared by your "I," (George Herbert Mead), means much to this "self." This poem demonstrates power rather than force, very powerful words from some one feeling weak - http://bloomingathome.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/pro...

      Hi sis, I am glad to see your writing out your fears. Get it out sweetie. You are such a light in my world. You and I will both be just fine. I do like to see you writing and talking about it. This will help diffuse the fear. I can see it now, after getting the "Great results" in June, you and I are off celebrating at one of our fave restaurants. HUGS Laura:)

      Beautiful. Out of pain and fear come beauty. I am so sorry you and your sister are having to go through this. Stay strong and continue to rely on God and those around you. Know that all of us other hubbers are thinking of you. You have a large family around you. You are not alone.

      Twilight Lawns,

      Your so right. Now we talk about cancer. It does feel good to vent on this subject.

      It is always wise and healthy to share your feeling about this subject. Can you remember, not so far back, when people would only say the "C" word, and didn't have the guts to face the beast and say, "Bugger off cancer"?

      Healing- it is an awesome universe in which we live- in which we are a part. In our darkness let us rejoice in knowing the Sun will shine- the moon will be full once again-

      All the power to you.

      peace- greg

      Sisterhood is a gift, healing touch. You are lucky to have each other. Some never get to experience the gift of a sister. Those of us that do are the lucky ones :) Best to your twinner!

      I so appreciate your comments. I love the False Evidence Appearing Real. I needed that today for some reason. Linda's energy is amazing, and most of me knows it will all be ok, and we will celebrate the spots being gone. I know she is clean and healthy and need to keep the fear out. God is only Love. Thanks for the lovely reminder of all the angels here praying on hub pages. It means so very much to me. God Bless you dear friend.

      At first I thought this was about a computer bug, in which case you would need to run a good cleaner called CCleaner - that stands for Crap cleaner.

      But in your case, you need a good dose of C-cleaner -Christ cleaner -it takes satan and all of your indecision and wipes them right out of your memory bank. Satan feeds on our fear - fear stands for

      False

      Evidence

      Appearing

      Real

      You and MT are surrounding by thousands of warring Angels, sent by God for your protection. You are surrounded by at least hundreds, if not thousands, of praying believers. You need to rest in the Lord and let those cares go. You have no evidence that the cancer has returned or that even if it has, she will die from it. Rest in His Peace that surpasses all human understanding now and know that you are both loved and in our hearts.
