Meghan- The Ways of Disease

From the point of view of Meghan, another of my characters...

“Fully alive, more than most. Ready to smile and love life.

Fully alive and she knows how to believe in futures.”

-Flyleaf, Fully Alive.

People look at me differently,


I am something strange,

a creature, not a person.

I am acute myeloid leukemia,

a disease, not a human.

I do not have feelings,

you can hurt me and laugh,

for I will not feel.

You are wrong.
