Cancer Poem by Ruta Mohapatra


Rating: 5.0

Some words send a chill
Down everyone's spine,
No matter how strong one is!
No matter how positive one is!

Sometimes she sits and wonders,
Whether reaching the stars,
Whether digging for diamonds,
Are more important than finding a cure!

A cure for the deadly diseases
That strike without discrimination,
Anytime, anywhere, young and old,
Shaking up even the brave and the bold!

I think a key thing is getting the right support from loved ones and good friends, though I don't speak from experience of cancer.

Not always, Sir! There are survivors but they go through a lot of pain.
