A BRAIN AWRY


She flows gracefully through the door
back to see the doctor once more
her third and last this week, we hope
arms full of holes, from needle pokes

A ritual learned well by now
endures so much, I don’t know how
hospital halls, we’ve walked them thin
NICU, admitted again

You see, they say, her brain’s awry
must stop the seizures, before she dies
the medicines, been through them all
so far none work, we hit a wall

Diets, surgeries, all have failed
the cure for her, remains veiled
but to give up or to relent
we will not do, we will lament

Until a cure, her brain made right
no more seizures or hellish nights
to live a life, as you or me
for her to be, seizure free.

I dedicated this poem to my beautiful daughter, Rose; she has the heart of a warrior!

PS. This one made W.D. Snodgrass' eyes well up, as it always does to mine. I wish he would have had the opportunity to meet my daughter. I know he would have loved her spirit.
