    OMGosh Richard, love your poem Poet's Shame. That is every poets nightmare. That had me laughing until my stomach hurt. Great stuff!

My Last Day

Today I learned my cancer diagnosis
And obviously I was stunned to hear
The implications of my poor prognosis
As I filled with anxiety and fear

How is it now that at so young an age
My life should suddenly come to an end
Am I mature enough to reach the stage
Where life can take so tortuous a bend
