Waxing poetic
Hi all, bored again. Took shot 42 last night and scribbled this down. What do you think? It is a work in progress, but be honest...Mark

I did not ask for it, but it came my way.
It arrived by a route that I cannot say
The fact is that it does not really matter
To ponder it will make you mad as a hatter
It lives inside and you it does not bother
Until years in the future, it can turn your life to fodder
Some say you die with Hep C, no need to treat
I say I cannot wait; it is something that I need to be beat
Some say the treatment is worse than the disease
I say of the ends of the two, Hep C will not please
To de-compensate from the maladies of the liver
A torturous life the Hep C will deliver
When I am attacked, I for one will fight
Because if not, I will surely fall in night
The treatment will test the strongest of people
With the support of the community we will be brought equal
History shows that the meekest of us all
Have been able to beat the beast by keeping eye on ball
Hang in there while you fight, you can do it as many have
Svr will be your life’s reward, as good as would be any salve

It's a powerful message. Isn't it cool that it just came out like that? I'm a language arts teacher. If my grade counts... I give you an A+. Experiences come and go, but words can last forever. Your words are very moving.
Way to go Mark.
Karen :)

New end that I like better...Mark

Sounds alright  Mark.I was asked a few  years ago by a tv reporter he was asking random people on the street,the question was what is a poet ? The first thing that came to my mind was a poet is someone who can put eloquently into words what everyone feels.
