Christmas present? Ham. Mom's gift - no spiral
Just sliced it, diced it, multiply, divide - nothing left by the wayside
Bone broth made
Compound interest
Cut it up three... maybe 4 ways
Skyline chili and a...

Relax dad, I can swim, I'm still YOUR daughter
Your wife, though, she said...
Forget what she said
People talk. Hush, shh! It's true  - she's wild
Mild and indifferent
when the meek inherits the Earth
but as long as evil spawns from birth
bound are not my wrists with worry or fear
every time someone whispers my name in another's ear
Blood on my tongue before I sob
Self reliant, I found another job
Over
time
always
No Sleep Quality In(n) daylight hours
Florescent lights
8 to 8
No time to sit around and...
Wait!
Where's my soup?!
That's all I have
One hundred and eighty food stamps
One hundred and eighty blessings each month
But not enough for you to take my lunch.
Part of a spoken word representing a dream, hard work w/ little reprieve.  Willingness to stand up to whosoever tells you "you can't do it" and those who think they can profit off of the young, vulnerable or those without social support.
All words are true.

Some plants,
they bloom
in the summer.
Others—
in autumn or spring.
Oh!
But you my dear
have weathered
through so many
struggles.
You will blossom
through so many
others.

Remember friends, not all pains or struggles are external. Don’t give up your fight.

Today I woke up,
and I realized,
that I hadn’t been sleeping,
and was grief paralyzed.

All that had happened,
all the ****** up nightmares,
all the loathing and anguish,
were all laid out and bare.

It took me a second,
to finally find my breath,
and when I did, I screamed,
and simply wished for death.

Take it away,
the agony that I feel,
I cannot bear this,
there’s no way to heal.

There was no answer,
as I lay on the ground.
No yes or no,
absolutely no sound.

I finally thought,
enough is enough.
I’ll fix it myself,
all the things I ****** up.

But before I do,
I’ll fix myself,
because you can’t fix what’s broken,
with something broken itself.

Today I start with me,
and I took a footstep.
One followed another,
even though I still wept.

I never looked back,
so I didn’t see,
what I left behind,
on the ground, was me.
This day ahead will bring me new experiens.
That day will slowly shift click's indicator.
The time will pull with slowly line inside my sinew.
Give me a wish and willpower to complete all my points.
The Time work for me.
The Time work for me.
The time bring me harmony with myself and balance.
Today I will be on the time.
My mind is clear and calm.
My body radiance a tranquillity and confidence.
I am accept all love that God give me around.
I pick up a nectar of happines from flowers of love.
I am accept and see just positive.
I am accept that positive waves.
My organism work like a watch.
The strainer cleaning my mind and my body from toxins and slags.
Let in just positive energy and give me a forse and power.
Sow inside me a calmness and silense.
The words is my remedy.
“ 74th Birthday Morning,

phone ringing for wishes… unattended

cup of tea and newspaper waiting for the sip… unattended

something not right…

blood in stool,

why?

the fear…

diagnosed stage 3,

self ….silence…

family…tears…

question from mind : Life is at its evening , is night now near?

answer from will power : Life has a new day every day and evening to disappear.

months and weeks…

chemos & radiation ,

pain , irritation

exercise & running ,

will power , motivation

cheers over jeers

close competition

then…

….the long day ….surgery

preference …on two legs not the stretcher

fun over depression,

proudly walking the red carpet of the theatre

few needles in back ,

….. six hours of unconsciousness

silence…

….dark deep silence

then the flash…

a rainbow from nowhere….

in brightness …. appears son’s face ….

congratulations you have won the battle

operation success-full

the smile of his will power replies , yes I hear ”
18th Aug 2018 , an Army Vet age around 74 years was diagnosed with colon cancer stage between two and three.

The picture below is of day 2 after surgery , clicked on 18th Dec 2018 where he is sitting and advising people around on how to defeat cancer.All credit of his success-full operation and recovery goes to his own will power and belief that Cancer is just another illness and can be cured if one is determined to beat it.

Doctors and staff attending him were saluting him for his will power and positivity as he was sitting fit and fine even after undergoing 6 longs hours of surgery.

From the day he was diagnosed Cancer to the day of surgery following was his routine:

8 kms brisk walk daily even on the radiation day.
2 hours exercise ,1 hour morning and 1 hour evening exercise — focused on abs.
no food restrictions everything he had other than non veg.
Main important thing carrying attitude of Positivity and Will Power that he will beat this illness .
A ******* year and you choose to call me tonight.
The same night I've slid my car into a ditch
blinded by bullets of rain and headlights.
The same day I'm covered in
spilled gasoline and freezing cold.
The night all I want is to be,
yet I'm dreading home.
I know it's been a while but I'm no longer your slave, so no. goodbye.
You won't make my life worse anymore.
Not even my day.

the world to stop spinning

the sun to stop shining

the tides to stop rising

the wind to stop blowing

the clock to stop ticking
