The Positive Negatives

Leave a comment

I was counting my blessings again lately and came up with a poem.

The Positive Negatives

I am beaming

I am not screaming

My singing voice changed after chemo

so now I can’t shatter a glass with a high note

I am a cancer survivor

I am not dead

Through lessons learned and tragedies gone through

I didn’t stop growing

though my parents and sister are dead and gone

I didn’t fly away from this earth too

I now write every day

My dreams did not wither up and die

The “Debbie talks too much” on my report card

didn’t stop me from loving people and having joy.


Audience participation segment:

See how many of these you can come up with, then feel free  to share them.

It may take some doing, but I believe everyone can come up with at least one.

Author: Debb Stanton

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
