My heart keeps ticking.
I walk, I read, I eat, I sleep.
And so — the fact is I outlived so many.
The rock hit my head today.
The ancestors in particular — three family females
who died of a dreadful cancer.
Well, I may have it too, but a different kind.
Just put it out there…and why?
Two husbands preceded me.
Is this my mystery to solve?
A plan by a god unknown too secretive to know?
My good genes…well, look at the facts.
There is no good reason why I am still around.
I am still here.
For a reason.
