An Inspirational Poem For The Cancer-stricken Patient
Now hope is what you clearly need;
Strong faith in God is surely prime;
Just trust in self for life ahead;
Life’s road for each is not the same!
The battle with the foe’s begun!
The struggle will relentless be;
Your mind and heart keep body’s strength;
Victory will be yours in the end.
About the past, you should not brood;
Maintain always a happy mood;
Harboring guilt, you never should;
God is so kind and always good.
Good that you saw the foe early;
Good that you took right remedy;
You could walk lanes you never saw;
Life will go on as per God’s law!
Just keep your cool and never feel;
Take things as they come on and deal;
All trauma, God knows how to heal;
To Him, in prayer, always kneel!
God loves each one of us so much;
He yearns to give His healing touch;
We keep away from Him as such;
Take up your cross and seek His help!
You ought to keep your spirits high
Until the time you have to die;
In despair you should never lie
And be the cancer’s victim, shy.
Accept realities of life;
Overcome tribulations, strife;
Cancer’s not just one problem rife;
Let it not cut your heart like knife.
If mind is made to think aright,
If heart is made to feel things bright,
With will-power and great in-sight,
Dispel life’s darkness by just light.
Are there not ones with worse disease?
Do accidents not make lives cease?
Oh, come what may, but live with ease;
Ask God for help and inner peace!
The way we think affects life-span;
Good thoughts improve quality, span;
Remove despair in mind of man;
A normal life live on, all can.
The breast to females gave beauty;
It kept them and others happy;
The loss of breast was indeed gloom,
But saved many from almost doom!
Let mind not fill with anger, hate;
We shouldn’t worry for change of fate;
The God who cared for us till date,
Will not give woes, and grief, like spate.
Your attitude must be correct;
You must accept your new defect;
Let dementia not one infect;
The good you did, you must inspect.
Diseases should not instil fear;
Smiles, laughter, hope keep us top-gear;
Magical is love from ones dear;
The thought of death mustn’t make one tear!
Cowards die many times ’fore death;
Man must be brave ever since birth;
Avoid all vice that take off mirth;
So transient is our life on earth.
Self-confidence must be your strut;
Its level, you must never cut;
Hope’s beacon must be never shut;
Victory must be your feeling-gut!
Lucky, you were not diagnosed late;
Endure if cure can’t mitigate;
God’s Word can change our every fate;
We have to reach His celestial gate.
Miracles happen nev’rtheless;
God does not wish life be worthless;
God gives all things from His largesse;
For this, our soul must be sinless!
Find solace in others’ sorrow;
From God our life-time, we borrow;
Let death pierce heart like an arrow!
Why bother of things of morrow?
Battle I must my cancer breast;
I take the treatment that seems best;
A storm can ruin any nest,
But I must pass my Maker’s test!
Let bygones be the dismal past;
Let storms not make us look aghast;
Prepare your soul with grace and fast;
Our life on earth will not long last.
Live every moment as worthy;
Fill yourself with good energy;
Each one’s life-span, God will decide;
Obey His code; in Him abide!
At times, it seems life turns unfair;
We lose our boldness and to dare;
But God our friend always takes care
Of us, and wishes our welfare.
Let sorrows fleet away like dreams;
Let morrows come like dawn’s sun-beams;
Ignore death’s threats and nasty screams;
The righteous have God’s angel-teams!
