As a shy kid growing up, I became even more in tune with social fears when I had kids of my own.
So I originally wrote the poem to share with Jake and Sydney when they were little. The fact is, fear never goes away, especially when you find yourself in the battle against cancer, as I find myself now. Everyone experiences moments of fear and trepidation. There’s a Mouse in My Pocket gives us a bit of courage to get through those challenging moments, accompanied by an assuring rodent and the knowledge that we are never alone.
