I was having a bath a few weeks ago
I got up to dry myself,with my favourite
Imagine my surprise when I came to
realise that what I was feeling with my
fingers was a lump,a little bump
but it scared the bejeezus out of me.
It was down there,you know in my
I didn’t know what to do,so I sat on the
toilet seat,pondering my next move.
I was thinking cancer,all kind of thoughts
were going through my head.
So I got out of the bathroom,and called out
to my house mate ( Clyde ).
He told me to go to my doctor,and get a load
off my mind.
So I took his advice and made an appointment
to see my doctor.
So I got to the doctors clinic and sat around
waiting and waiting,thinking and thinking,
worrying and worrying.
Even though I was pretty sure it was just a hernia.
But you never know until the test results come back.
But straight away my doctor told me my guess was
right,it was just a hernia.
My relief was profound,it was official,i wasn’t going
I was worrying about nothing.
I realised it was just a lump on the road of life.
A lump.a bump.I will survive.
But I came to the realisation,that there are millions
of people worse off then me.
So I have got a hernia,it isn’t a big deal.
After my operation I will be as good as new.
But a lot of people around the world cant say
If you think you have it tough,just watch the news
and you will see,that there are plenty of people .
worse off then you and me.
A lump on the road of life
It is just a little bump,a speed hump.
Just take it in your stride and you will be
But don’t be a hero,and ignore the warning
If you find a lump anywhere on your body.
Get to your doctor as soon as you can.
It is probably nothing to worry about.
But it is best to get it checked out,the
sooner the better.
