Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge


The doctor was hardly sympathetic

I doubt she had many ethics

I sat awaiting her decision

She asked what was my vision

Would I come out with defeated mind

My femininity declined?

I replied that I would not

It hadn’t entered my thoughts

I was just glad to get rid of the disease

It was the cancer that made me feel unease

Even now so many years later

I would hardly rate her

As the best OBGYN oncologist

Certainly no psychologist

My concern was my physical being

Couldn’t envision forward thinking

I survived which was my goal

No matter what she had told.
