Six years ago


Thursday 2nd May


Six years ago today

On the second of May

Surgery began

Because I liked to tan


A mole upon my toe

Started to grow and grow

It was melanoma

Changing my persona


It’s not just skin cancer

Deadly, I found out after

Spreading to my lymph nodes

Anxiety overloads


But six years down the line

I sort of feel quite fine

No Evidence of Disease

I’m here; the day to seize


Feeling thankful

Living with vigilance

Wearing sunscreen

Melanoma Awareness


A post from six years ago

A chilly Porthmeor Beach

Grey skies over the harbour

In need of colour!
