YUEYANG, HUNAN — Carla Wu (吴双 Wu Shuang) is a former student of mine, graduating in 2011. In August she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, had surgery to remove a tumor on her femur, and has had two rounds of chemotherapy so far. Today I am publishing a poem she put in her Qzone. We hope you like it.

Is everything all right?

It’s already been more than two months. As for today, in a word, it’s nice to be alive.

I went home, so, that’s ok.

I can sleep and be lazy every day, so, that’s ok.

I eat a meal, have a drink, or on a nice day, can sit quietly in the sunshine in the courtyard, so, that’s ok.

I have a lot of time to think about things every day, so, that’s ok.

I can read and write every day, so, that’s ok.

If I am bored, I can watch TV, so, that’s ok.

On sunny afternoons, I can go out for a walk, so that’s also good.

Sometimes, a lot of childhood friends come over to play cards, or to chat with me, so, that’s ok.

At night I can see the limitless night sky, so, that’s ok.

As winter gradually comes, I don’t have to face the long, long ugly scar like a centipede on my bare leg every day. So that’s good, too.

My mind has no problems. I can learn, so, that’s ok.

My limbs are perfect. I can move, that’s so good.

My eyesight is still good I can also see the warmth of the world, so, that’s ok.

I don’t have any infectious diseases, I can be together with my people and share their love, so, that’s ok.

Around me, I always have so many who care about me, who encourage me, my friends, so, that’s ok.

After a long time away, I finally got to the Internet, you are all there, as at the beginning, so, that’s ok.

After so much, I’m still alive, so that is good.

Is everything all right?
