I Never Knew - Poem by Raihana Abdul Jabbar

Born in a rainy July,
I thought 'Cancer' was only my star sign.
'I never knew',
That it meant a stubborn crab,
Holding onto my life.

When I coughed,
And wasted away, sunken eyes.
'I never knew',
Tumor cells were migrating,
Heart, Brain, Lungs.

When I died,
Someone clad in black, mourned,
'I never knew',
That this happened to my friend.
So unexpected, so soon.
