Going Home

By Dawn Oswald

Going home Back to my beautiful blue waves O, how I love how the ocean sounds The birds flying above I just love the Seagulls, the sounds they make When I hear them, I will feel so happy Reminds me of our family vacations in Canada There I can sit on my porch and watch the boats go by Stare at my water of peace Back to the heat Away from the cold I can finally thaw out My bones can stop hurting I can be by my friends and family Going home to my home That sounds lovely No one else’s home My home I can do what I want to it Sure, it’s going to be hot, but I will have AC Away from being afraid of being attack by wildlife The bears and moose, but there were no snakes I will miss Alaska It is beautiful and fishing is great The mountains are so beautiful I did get sick on the boat, but I still fished like a champion Don’t worry Alaska, I will be back I am sure I will run out of fish and bear meat Would you rather be cold or hot? Back to enjoying my walks on the beach, but I did not miss all that sand How do you get sand everywhere? I mean everywhere If I get to hot, I can just jump in the water Going home finally, but for how long? We might adventure again Wait and see But for now, I am going home

Surviving Breast Cancer provides breast cancer support, events, and webinars at no cost to you! Whether you are looking to gain more knowledge on a particular topic or meet up with other breast cancer survivors, we have something for everyone. 


Our standing appointment on Thursdays is for all stages. We also host specific breakout groups once a month for specific stages and subtypes such as Metastatic breast cancer, and Inflammatory Breast Cancer, etc. 


The Book Club meets the first Sunday of every month at 11 am ET. You are welcome to join each month or pick and choose your month based on your availability and the book we are reading. 


Through art, writing, and other creative modalities, we hold the power to manage our stress, make sense of our now, and relax into moments of stillness. 


Free, monthly, online classes in restorative yoga, yoga for breast cancer, and Zumba.
