FIRST PILL

Took first hormone-suppression
Pill today; only 5 x 365 - 1 remain.
Saving my life; could come with
Side effects; hold the vision against.

Slightly leery that such a small 
Tablet packs such a big wallop:
If missed, not OK to take two
On same day; just go forward.

Three generations of cancer
Survivors; general good health 
And resilience, augmented by 
Kind and competent medicos.

Current usual stance to assume 
Best, prepare for worst; hold each 
With equal valuing, assuming 
Emergence of integrative Third.
