Lucky 

So lucky, people say.


That they caught it when they did

That it hasn’t spread

That they got it all

That I have insurance


So, so lucky.


That my friend told me about her cancer

That I finally moved my arse and 

Went and had that mammogram

That I live in the lucky country


So lucky 


That my prognosis is good

That my job will be there for me 

That I am surrounded by family and friends

With their love, soup and casseroles.


Lucky. 


That my new set are perkier 

Smaller, Scar-rier, numb-ier.

A bit lopsided

Like me.  


Some days though,

I just feel 

A tiny bit

Unlucky.

    I know what you mean. Days of depression. 
    I see worse off than me so I  have nout to complain about.

    I think that's it exactly @Spursy - when so many are nowhere near as lucky it's hard to say that on some days it really is still is a bit shit and I'm finding things hard/painful/sore/distressing etc without feeling guilty about others so much worse off.
