A Childhood Cancer Survivor Poem
© 2016 Christine Mulvihill
Welcome to a place where nothing is what it seems
The real are things that only come from dreams,
Enter the world of the living and the dead
Enter to the place that everyone dreads.
Go to the realm of things unexplained
Go to a place where no logic remains,
See the place where strange things brew
See a place that is far beyond you.
Far beyond conscience, hope and pain,
Far beyond the normal far beyond sane,
Don’t look back only look ahead
Before you realize it’s all in your head.
Once you’re here you can’t go back
Turn around if a soul you lack,
Now you’ve been warned So enter if you dare,
But beware &prepare your in for a scare.
Enter the realm of no escape
And watch the impossible start to take shape,
What for you in this realm lies
A simple question without a reply,
Take a step forward and see for yourself
It’s more than just another book on the shelf,
Take a walk on a path that never ends
In trolls and munchkins you’ll find friends.
From the bottomless cauldron take a sip
Feel your body start to slip,
Slip into the realm of things unknown
Let your mind be overthrown,
Let go of all that seems right & true
And grab the reins of something new,
Once you get there its heaven inside
But on the way it’s one hell of a ride,
ENTER THE REALM
