Why Me?

Published: March 2008

Every girls dream is to have a child of their own,
A little baby to cuddle, nurture and hold,
A child who's future rest in their hands,
No child for this girl, she doesn't understand,
I want a baby to cuddle, nurture, and hold,
Why did my womb have to be so cold,
The doctor said a baby could not live in there,
The space is occupied by a cancer...unfair,
Surgery for you, and no babies of course,
Only 23...too young...we'll find the source,
The source they did find, and I'm still alive,
My womb now uninhabitable...my eyes full of tears...
From this point on... menopausal years...
Too young to know why this all had to be,
Only one question....WHY ME?

I love this poem because this is how I feel, I am 22 and have cancer and I will most likely no longer to he able to have a child of my own. I also work with children so having that every day is a challenge. But thank you for writing this, these words help make me feel at home.

23 is way too young, I'm 29 no surviving children, currently undergoing hormone treatment to 'conservatively' treat stage 1 uterine cancer with a malignant tumor and am awaiting results from my biopsy yesterday but I don't think it's too good. My thoughts are with the young lady who wrote this and THANK YOU, I take comfort from not being the only young person diagnosed with something like this, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I found this poem so sad I am unable to have anymore children because of cancer and know how much it hurts, I had my son when I was 23 and his father wanted nothing to do with him and I wasn't ready to be a mother but I now know he was my angel sent to help me through this and he was my only chance I don't know that I would have fought the same without his wee face to encourage me, the girl that wrote this poem is so strong and will someday believe it or not find an answer, we are only sent mountains we can climb may it take us a while
