I’m not seventeen.


It’s a hard thing to deal with cancer in a family.

I’ve had to much of it in my life to speak of. I have lost uncles , a brother , and almost my daughter.

But somehow it took my mother’s recent battle to bring me to my knees.  I have lost younger people and older to this fight.

But having my mother saying.  Take my breasts, i’m not seventeen.

That for a boy is the last straw.

Fuck how can I cry enough, it’s my mom.

How do I deal with the pain of almost losing her.

I want to bang my head on the keys again and again. I have no words

Get better mommy, I love you.

forever and always.
