It’s sometimes difficult to see,

where any one of us would be

without the help that was for me

provided by my ostomy.


When ostomies have been discussed,

most have seen them as a must.

Without a stoma most of us,

would not be here to make a fuss.


It can seem strange when things have changed

and your colon’s rearranged.

But when you know your life’s at stake,

a stoma’s what you’ll gladly take.


Without my small, red-rose rotunda,

I could now be six feet under,

and pushing up the daisies, so

that’s not the way I chose to go.


Compared with the alternative,

a stoma’s a preservative.

For it’s preserved a way of life,

that I deserved away from strife.


I would not wish this thing on you

or anything that I’ve been through.

For nobody that’s not been there,

could hope to understand or care.


When I recall what went before,

and foresaw what lay in store,

there really was no choice for me

but to accept an ostomy.


I now expect my attitude

reflects undying gratitude.

As I can guess where I might be,

I bless my mighty ostomy.
