Day Six: Banks and Bets

Appointments with needles and staying still
I prepare my life to change
Putting the children to bed
In a luxurious bathtub of ice
In a room as dark as night.
I can feel my cancer growing,
I just need more than knowing that I'll be alright.
A mother cries and a daughter follows suit.
I cannot be robbed of my youth.
