Alice in Wonderland?

Introduction

After 3 years of cancer treatment and at the age of 5, Christine sheds that horrid IV and heads home to a “normal” life. With her hair starting to return, school and friends to look forward to, she finally relaxes at home.

Alice in Wonderland?
By CHRISTINE MULVIHILL

I walk to school every day
And every day I go the very same way
Today I thought I’d try something new
The grass was so green and the sky so blue.

So I walked through the trees
so I could smell the sweet breeze
As I got farther in the wood
Things got stranger than they ever could.

A little white rabbit stopped to ask me the date
And cursed as it ran off saying I’m late I’m late
A pink cat that seemed to disappear
Told me that I was ever so near.
On the ground was a deck of cards
The queen surrounded by all her guards.

“Time” A mad hatter asked
But I was too focused on my task
In the distance I heard a beeping sound
But saw nothing when I turned around
I felt someone poking me in the head
And awoke to realize I was still in bed.
