Like a thief in the night
It takes over your life.
Eating from the inside
Slowly dying.
By the time you realize
You are a shell
Waiting to be put six feet under.
Some are lucky
Discover it early.
Other’s ignore it
For the unfortunate few
It’s too late.
Some don’t know it is there
When they discover
It is too late.
Too tired to say goodbye
Thinking you got time.
Teary eyed
You close your eyes and sigh.
You are a shadow of yourself
Your strength was put to the test
Immunity lost and gone
Many have been claimed
Many survived to tell the story
There is a murderer in town
It has a name and many heads
When it invites, introduces itself…..
“Hi my name is cancer. I would like to be your friend”.
Reject, delete.
Walk away, fight and win the battle.
