Stronger Than Cancer, Bob - Poem by Michael Peterson

I felt different, a little tired
Worn out, ill here and there
Visit the Doctor, did some test
Took some picture, waited for the results
A spot in me started small, got bigger
Time will tell, not a good sign
Here came the shock
The bad word no one wants
But I take it stride cause I can beat it.
I am strong, I will have the power to go on
My new slogan Stronger Than Cancer
No one will beat me down
I will grow old, see my boys grow
See them wed, see their kids
I will not give,no matter when
Stronger Than Cancer
Hope will rally, cures to be found
Medicines to take, no fakes
I will survive, fight for life
The pain will never go, mind so strongly
Prayers needed, prayers answered
The fight never ends, I will not bend
Till the end. I am Stronger Than Cancer
Thanks Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Mother
For the love of me, I will survive
Strong Than Cancer, Bob
