Cancer

Migrating cell

Migrating cell (Photo credit: TheJCB)

An errant cell mutates
And quickly finds its mate
They grow and grow
And so it goes
Until
You’re suddenly feeling ill

These new cells are defined
Uniquely re-designed
Proliferate
At such a rate
You see
Yourself in entropy

Surgery and radiate
To firmly stop the rate
Of such growth
It’s our oath
To God on high
That only bad cells die

I pray recovery
Will finally set you free
From this dark pain
So you regain
Your health
The greatest form of wealth

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    So true … I’ve often told people that chemo is the fine art of poisoning a person just to the point of killing them … but not quite … and hoping you get more of the bad stuff than the good stuff. Great poem. πŸ™‚
