A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill
Bury me like any other
Bury me like I have no mother.
Bury me an urchin that has no father
Bury me a drowned soul, a fish out of water.
Bury me indifferent to the pain
Bury me amidst the pouring rain.
Bury me pure & innocent
Bury me worthless, I’m not worth a cent.
Bury me taking all I could
Bury me hopeless and misunderstood.
Bury me with blood that smells sweet
Bury me and put my soul to sleep.
But bury me in my own f***in pain and misery
And bury me a stranger because you never knew me!
