Cancer - Poem by Joshua Thomas Gage

The black plague inside of you
Is eating you up right on through
As every second goes by night and day
I just wish this cancer would go away

I never wanted to see you like this
Wish i could take it from you and dismiss
This evil curse that the devil made
Once again he has betrayed

The one that I have loved the most
Just so this thing has a host
You see it only grows inside the best
So that it can put them to their final rest

It is not fair the way it works
Why couldn't it be one of the jerks
No of course it has to be you
Just stay strong and ill hold you right on through

All of the pain that it has caused
It Put my life at a stop, instantly paused
Only because it is killing me too
Although not infected like you

This evil black plague that I speak of
Has caused others discomfort and loss of love
For all the victims of this curse
I will pray for you to get better not worse

Do me a favor look up into the sky
Have you ever just thought and wondered why
If we are gods children indeed
Why wouldn't he help when in need

You see we are put here to face our fears
We were meant to shed those tears
Everything in life happens for a reason
So please, take it with treason

It might not be easy this I know
But there is yet another time to show
You will miss them oh so much
They will always be there with that heavenly touch

Why do you think on those saddest days
That one special song just plays and plays
It is their sign to show you they care
They may not be physically but they are mentally there

Looking down upon you watching what you do
Making sure that you stay true
True to your family and your friends
Don't go crazy cause in the end

I promise you this, even if things get out of line
You will not ever be left behind
They will always remember you
Just like you will always remember them too

When your time comes you will know
Just live your life to the fullest to show
That you have beaten this wicked curse
Now put your life in fast forward not reverse

Think ahead in your life instead
Of putting yourself down with a frown
Never let go and never give in
In the end you will always Win
