This week is full of
Uncertainties that I can’t pretend
Don’t affect me–
An oncology appointment
For the 15th-year annual follow up;
The aftermath of the
Sudden and unexpected death
Of a colleague;
The need for serious conversations
About future quality of life decisions.
The list seems never-ending.
I feel the weight of the world
Pressing down on me
As I strive to keep my head upright
In this sea of unknowns.
