Since I had an ostomy.

Many questions I foresee.

But one thing’s certain I have found.

Many answers are around.


Some of the answers I can get.

By surfing on the internet.

Within this osto-underworld.

Many answers are unfurled.


People there will often know.

What and when and where to go.

They seem pleased to share their wisdom.

All about this osto-system.


Does what they say apply to me?

Or how I view my ostomy?

Well, so that I won’t go astray.

I try to weigh up all they say.


And hope that what they say perchance.

Will also fit my circumstance.

Sometimes it does, in little bits.

Sometimes it feels like nothing fits.


Sometimes I’m filled with great despair.

It’s then I need someone to care.

Not many people understand.

They have not had this thing first hand.


But those who have experience.

Have shown they have resilience.

They shine a light and give us hope.

And show us all how we can cope.


At those times when hope descends.

I know I need those osto-friends.

They’re always there as I recall.

So I wish to thank them all.
