Cancer Patient's Soliloquy - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Has happiness ever come to my life?
if I go to North or to South
East or to West, somewhere else
Who brings me solace?
if there is a bitter capsule or a sweet sugar coated pill
can be swallowed easily
which kills the poverty or give strength to live peacefully.
if there is a doctor kind hearted
without spectacles which covers the humanity.
A bed of a soft mattress to kill the back-ache
I can sleep in a graveyard or a thick forest
listening to the birds and beasts.

    An interesting write; I recently had a grandmother die from cancer. I wrote a short tribute called 'In Remembrance of Grandma'. She was the only grandparent I had the chance to say goodbye (in person) before her passing. (Report) Reply
