I need some help. I have been mulling over an idea that keeps swimming about in my head that needs exposure, but I need a metaphor for our disease other than "the beast that devours".
I really want to write about how cancer "devoured" 3 of my friends and is making its mark on another as we speak but I would appreciate a leg up with this metaphor.
If you can help with a starting point, I will have a crack at a poem. (The first after 35 years). The glass half full side of cancer prompting me to write again?!
Thanks for your wisdom and creativity,
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
