Cancer

I have watched the deterioration
of individuals like me
after they've been told the news
that they have a disease.

They lose the hope of future plans
because now, they must recover
by, tirelessly, following new demands
oblivious to any other.

Never look away from life
to allow it to intrude
upon the positives you've tried
or the outcomes you've persued.

You can't put the hammer down
and change what I will see.
If I think what's right for my own life
is good,
then, good for me.

If you were stricken with the same:
determination stopped.
I'd pick you up and tell you once-
"It's just a bridge to cross."

Look beyond the lives now gone
because, not everyone will win.
But if you do the best you can,
it's worth every minute spent.
