A car side swiped their car on the bridge. Forcing my head into the birth canal and tighten the cord around my neck. Doctors told her not to push, because my heart kept stopping. My mother was told to stop pushing but we all know how how hard that can really be. When I emerged I was purple and unresponsive, while the doctor tried to revive me fifteen minutes had passed.

I'm writing again, after the death of my father. Whom passed away from pancreatic cancer just over a year ago. I feel my poems could help others with their grief as writing them and reading them has me. My Shedding Greif, is the title to one of my poems. Please read and be inspired. Thank you!
