Resection

re·sect

riˈsekt/

verb

SURGERY

  1. cut out (tissue or part of an organ).

 

Today is a day to consider that which might need to be cut out of my life.  To consider what tissue is participating in bringing life forward, and what tissue might be destroying it.

 

What impedes the flow of blood

Or breath?

 

What grows and replicates in ways it should not?

What is malign?

And what is benign but should not be there just the same?

 

This is a task of

Compassion and precision.

 

Today is a day to remember

And

Today is a day to affirm life

And cut out

All that does not.

One thought on “Resection

  1. What a wonderful poem…how is your resection coming along? I find I often have to engage in this exercise on a regular basis and I always feel so much better after I exercise courage to cut off that which isn’t life-giving although it can be scary at times to do so …blessings to you 🙂
