This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

When I saw  that This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time  had written  a poem to her sister here  Kicking Cancer  I decided  to re use and  revamp a poem, I also wrote last  year and post it   for this month’s cause.

I wrote this poem  last year to  three people  near  to  me  all had Cancer. Three different  tyes of Cancer. Two  of  them have survived,  sadly  my  dear  friend Karen  died of  Cancer of  the Oesophagus , but  the other  friend  survived a  throat  Cancer  and my  dear bubbly  cousin survived  Breast  Cancer. I  thought  well you cannot  shout  loudly  enough  about  Kicking Cancer so I took out my  old poem dusted  it off  and revamped it  for this month’s cause.

Why is it called  red shoes, because  my  cousin loves  her red  shoes! She has  to wear  red high heels to  work ( not  quite  the ones in the phot

My Red Shoes.

These are my, can do shoes! My  not going to listen to you shoes!

My get up and go shoes! My stamp on and kick the shit out of the blues, shoes!

My ain’t gonna be be put on by you shoes! My skipping and dancing in the moonlight shoes.

My walking the righteous path shoes! my  who am I kidding shoes?

My kicking up a rumpus fetch me my compass shoes!

My who you looking at shoes, my cop an eye full of this shoes!

My ain’t behaving well shoes. My dancing on the ceiling enjoying every second shoes!

My in ya face, fall from grace shoes. My come and get me shoes,

My tiny winy skirt shoes! My delights are on offer shoes!

My need a thrill shoes,  my ones and twos shoes!

My I am bored shoes, my I want it now shoes!

My singing in the rain shoes, my apple pie up in the sky shoes!

My tipping the scales my way shoes, my light a candle say a prayer shoes!

My uppdido shoes, my yabbadabbado shoes!

My take a look at you shoes, my lookie lookie I just might let you touch me shoes!

My who am I kidding shoes, my I wish I was not such a wooze shoes!

My when is my turn shoes? My fingers burned all hopes spurned shoes!

My bridges burnt shoes, my lessons learnt shoes!

My on my own shoes, my without a home shoes! My nothing left to loose shoes!

These are my I can beat you shoes, my watch it! your days are numbered shoes.

My, we have your measure now shoes. My cut you out, kick you hard shoes,

My grind you into the floor shoes!!My laugh in your face shoes!!

My Cancer we will wipe  you out shoes, My will without  a doubt shoes!

    Such an whimsical, upbeat post about such a terrible diease. As a cancer survivor I can tell you that this poem is exactly the attitude needed for the individual to beat cancer.

    Thank You Willow, great post.

      I meant every word of it!! the idea came from the fact that my cousin loves her red uniform and shoes so I hit on the idea of the shoes having the power to kick Cancer’s ass! xx
