Breast Cancer Defiant Bra Tattooed Life Choice - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
a blue flying butterfly a brown squirrel ferns
berries violet yellow daffodils blue bird flies
bright sharp inked tapestry in rainbow colours
tattoos enclosed in chain graphic bra designs
courage etched in hues takes multiple forms
trauma has mind splinter many edged facets
behold a statement of courage written in art
honour courage honour all who need support
after surviving cruel breast cancer drastic measures?
would you still feel be a beautiful sensual woman?
after losing shock womanhood cut off bresasts nipples?
is surviving is woman's courage worthy of admiration?
would you hide in a corner hide from world?
could you naked new figure mirror face behold?
how will you face pity in old friends family?
how will you face horror in eyes of scrutiny?
