I Hadn't Known

By: Andrea Denson

The day when I was ay cousin’s baby shower.

My sister told me my mother was on her


When I heard the news-- my heart dropped.

My breath was taken away.

My emotions were running wild like


I felt puzzled and the feeling of crying came

Over me.

I thought about all the possibilities of

Extending her life.

They said they tried everything and she had

Only a few months left If she was lucky.

Eventually, she died And so did a part of me.
