A Poem for Cancer Patients and Survivors
By Amy AKA Lacrea Moonlight
I have an enemy
It's close to my heart
But I don't love it
It hurts me so
But I feel no pain
My heart breaks
As it continues to gain
I stare at the sky
And scream "Why me?"
And though I get no answer
The truth is clear to see
"A test of will,"
My heart whispers to me
What if I fail?
"You won't; that wasn't meant to be."
So these words I impart to you
A vow I will not revoke
Let these words sing to you
Even when your heart has broke
"I will not go silently into the night,
Breath will not leave me without a fight,
Though labored as my body may be,
My heart is the sky where my soul flies free,
My mind is the clouds so white and pure,
Above this evil I will endure,
For the friends I have and the family I love,
I know I'm not ready to be so far above."
