Ain’t nobody gonna tell you the road you must take

Aint’ nobody else sposed to walk your path

For goodness sake!

Go head on and sip from the goblet of life

And be fooled if you think the wine is always sweet

We gotta fall and get up

Because we are strongest when we are weak!

My gut tells me that chemo ain’t my way

And it ain’t about being in denial

I love my life and want all of my days.

If my cat can eat grass

to cleanse inside

Then intuitively I know that herbs and God’s other gifts

have always been friends of mine.

I ain’t working for a minute

And I don’t need no alibi

This healing journey is an

“in the moment” ride.

Butterflies flutter, birds sing, dragonflies whisper

As I smile….with my wings.
