Living With The Big C - Poem by David Harris

Living with the big C
is a paradox of life and death,
the sword of Damocles
held above your head.

You search for treatment
grasping at any cure
you can find
to set it in remission.

The more you grasp
for the magic cure
the more your life
ebbs farther away.

Still you hope with prayer
one day in the near future
the cure you’re looking for
will eventually be found.
