HOPE

Vainly optimistic I was
believing my life
would be long, eternal even
and dotted with successes
to be proud of
so I'd be worthy in the eyes of someone
and therefore, above all, be loved.

Now, my sole task's to find
some hope to cling to,
such craving for a little more time
to live, a miracle -
because such things 
can happen if we truly believe in them.
And I so, so want to survive.

The arbitrary onslaught
of rogue cells predict my demise:
the ultimate conflict
between tainted flesh and sharp scalpel.
Oh let me be brave and dwell
not on dying, nor on giving up - but on victory,
on finally defeating the enemy within...


I'm going into hospital on Monday to have an operation. I hope to visit you all again soon.
In the meantime...have a great week, my dear friends 😊😊 xxx

  2. My sweet Ygraine,
    As a master of philosophy, I believe that our finiteness, poetically speaking, could be done the other way around, being born old and rejuvenating each day and thus, one day we would disappear because we were not born. But, as this is the only life we have, fight hard my sweet friend, be faithful to your faith (be brave), lean on your friends (I will always be here for you) and know, that life does not want you leave before we meet.
    Kisses in the heart and believe me, everything will be fine. ♥

    1. My dear friend Doug, your kindness has truly brought a tear to my eye...in the nicest possible way.
      Your support is keeping me fighting, even when I feel like giving up. I truly believe that every experience we have is for a reason...and that the "cross" each one of us has to bear will, if we can carry it with fortitude, bring eventual peace and happiness.😊
      That you are here for me is the greatest gift...one that I appreciate much more than mere words can express.
      Thank you, dear friend...so, so much.😊😊
      Many Kisses xxx

  5. Dear Ygraine,
    It is a deeply human poem, the lyrics of which run through the whole sea of human mortality. But it is also a poem that contains the incomparable hope of human thought.
    I'm sure everything will be fine.
    I would like to have with you this thought with you:
    Nothing can frighten such a great Poet. Words love your hand.

    1. My dearest friend Baili, oh how your kindness touches my heart.😊😊
      You always give me strength, faith and inspiration...and those things instil in me the courage to fight. Following my operation there were some complications - inflammation, swelling and a lot of pain...but I begin my drug therapy tonight, so am hoping for some relief in a few days! In around 5 weeks I should know if the treatment has been successful.
      Oh I know how much you, too, have suffered...having had family members ill and dying. These experiences leave a scar on our hearts, don't they...and only those people who have been through similar experiences can truly appreciate how much it hurts.
      I honestly believe that every experience we have in life - whether joyful or painful, is given to us by our Creator in order to teach us what our Spirit within needs to learn in this lifetime...and that gives me inner peace and acceptance.😊
      Dearest Baili, thank you...from the depths of my heart!

      Sending you all my love and hugs, always ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  11. I hope that your surgical operation has run in order to get you very quickly.
    The poem, which is excellent, reflects your preoperative mood. You will not die now, you will continue to write poetry for many more years.
    Get well and come back better, fast and beautiful ...
    Kisses, my dearest friend Ygraine.

    1. My dear friend Jaime, your beautiful words of comfort have genuinely touched my heart...oh thank you, so so much!😊😊
      I understand that it will take some time to recover, so will continue to write as much as I can. I do find it quite therapeutic.
      I have beaten cancer just over two years ago, so am hopeful I can do so again. " Think positive" I keep telling myself...and maybe those thoughts will win through!😉
      Your friendship is so precious 😊😊
      Stay safe and happy, my friend.

  17. Of course you will win. Because you are a natural winner and because you tend to be optimistic and positive.
    And write, because, as you say, writing is therapeutic.

  30. My name is Thomas White, from United states, i have been Herpes positive and it is just like been through hell; well special thanks to God almighty for using Dr Twaha, the greatest Herbal doctor in curing my herpes disease. I was diagnosed of this disease in the year 2004. Although I was taking my medications I was not myself. Until a few weeks ago. My friend came to me and told me that he saw many testimonies on how Dr. Twaha  cured people Herpes disease. Although I never believe in herbs, I said to myself "seeing is believing" I took his name and searched it on GOOGLE, I saw many testimonies myself. Quickly, I copied his email: drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com I emailed him, he gave me a form to fill which I did, then he sent me a message  and told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the cure for me and he told me that it will cost me some money which i sent to him because I need the cure urgent,  He bought the items and prepared a cure for me, then he sent the parcel to me through courier delivery service. I paid the courier services, I got my parcel, it was a bottle of ointment as described by Dr,Twaha After taking the ointment he told me to do, the herpes test and the result came out negative. Quickly I messaged him and told him what happened he congratulated me. I promised to tell the world about him. You can contact him with any problem  via email: ( drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com ) or contact him on WhatsApp +2349038518881 thank you Dr Twaha

  32. The greatest Joy in my life today is that i have been cured of Herpes by a Doctor called Dr. Edualekhide, I was infected with HERPES Disease in 2017, i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, so I was thinking how can I get a solution, So that my body can be okay. Until one faithful day as I was browsing on the internet I saw a testimony on how Dr. Edualekhide has helped people in curing Herpes and other diseases, quickly I copied his WhatsApp number so i contacted him for solution for my Herpes disease, So Dr. Edualekhide told me that his going to prepare his herbal medicine for my health which he sent to me, luckily after 2week my Herpes was cured. Dr. Edualekhide is well recognized as one of the best herbalist doctors in Africa, you don't have to be sad anymore or share your tears anymore on this disease when the cure is available. The medicine has NO SIDE EFFECT, There's no special diet when taking the medicine. He also cures ALS, HIV AIDS, CANCER, HPV, DIABETES and lots more.

    Here is his E-mail: dredualekhide@gmail.com

  34. Powerful Herbal treatment is 100% guarantee for HSV cure, the reason why most people are finding it difficult to cure HSV 1 or 2 is because they believe on medical report, drugs and medical treatments which is not helpful to cure HSV and hasn't proved any sign of helping. Natural roots/herbs are the best remedy which can easily eradicate herpes forever. I never believed it until I was helped and cured of my 16 months genital herpes with natural herbal medicines from Dr OGU Patrick. Where other medical prescribed drugs and treatments failed, Natural herbs helped saved me from Genital herpes permanently and i am so grateful for this. You can also get help from this great and powerful herbs can also contact Dr OGU Patrick through via this email: drogugusolutionhome@gmail.com , Text or call him via : +1 719 629 0982
