I was born Thursday November 15th 1983. My parents were on there way to the hospital for a tour of the ob wing. There was a c-section scheduled for the next day, but God had other plans. 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. Then I began to cry. I was 10 days late arriving in the world.

Silently Rushing Rivers

Chattering cheers
Hopefully no tears
Voices in my head,
They sound like thee.
Criticizing me
Back side of the leaf.
Wind blown.
Trees shake
branches, bend
I feel a quiver in my hand
a flinch of thumb
White noise
Muffling thoughts

My Shedding Grief

I feel my tears
beneath the surface,
A tickle in the tip of my nose
eyes watering.
Can you hear me
Screaming inside my head.
Like screaming
Into a muffling pillow
My world is falling apart
Now that you're gone
a DAM bursting.
Glossy eyes

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!
