Regret

Overloaded with Information
Google adds confusion
Failing to gain insight
Feeling alone and preoccupied 
 
Sweat covers her  fingertips 
Desperately she scrolls
Searching for details 
her anxiety takes control 
 
Unsure of what she'll find 
Regret adds tension
Conflicting facts confusing
Potentially devastating impact
 
Overcome with guilt
Wondering why
she was lazy
Disrespecting her body
 
Awareness 
Pink ribbons the sign
A simple exercise 
Five minutes the sacrifice
 
Imagining her children
Devastated by grief
Would they understand 
Stalling doesn't offer long term relief 
 
As an ostrich stands
his head below the ground 
Hiding gains nothing 
Unless its an early coffin
 
Gazing at her reflection 
Realisation dawns
Is she too late 
In her eyes, tears form
 
Tenderly touching her breast
Repulsed by the lump
In order to move forward 
Regular checking a must
and seeking professional help
