    I now have cancer,
    The only thing I ever knew,
    was life ended in death,

    Day becomes night,
    night becomes day,
    Dead people sleep,
    while the alive just lay,


    I continue to fight,
    Battle after battle,
    I will not loose,
    Week after week,
    hour after hour,
    I pray my body
    will surive another day,
    but the thought goes sour,

    You see its eating at me,
    laughing at me,
    while moral for life
    just rotts away,
    Kill me now,
    because
    later ends in death too.

    I aint got the time
    to wage a long war
    on death
    All this rambling,
    i guess i should save breath

    Day becomes night,
    night becomes day,
    Dead people sleep,
    while the alive just lay,

    Im half dead,
    the cancer is half in me,
    the other half gave up,
    now its up to God
    to defend me.


    **Side note**

    Ive missed yall dearly... Im fighting for my life, so that my soul may continue to write.. Poetry. :hearts4:

    Blessed Sister PoeticManifesta, I rarely look in the poetry forums, but I was struck by this poem…I have definitely been aware of your presence here and I remember recently responding to one of your post in the Black men’s section…Sister I am moved by your words.

    It is in the spirit world where this battle will be waged. We are all part of a family here, even though we can’t see each other as much as we can feel one another. I’m sure the power of the multitude of souls and spiritual knowers here, will assist you in this great war against your body and soul…you are not half dead, but alive. And that is what counts.

    I will spiritually speak to this, with all that I have inside of me and all that I know, to help you with this struggle. I would say God bless you…but you are already blessed…now you must use that blessing to its fullest

    Strength and Supreme Love,

    Brother Sun Ship :hearts4: :)

    The strength in you, far outweighs the cancer. You may not feel that way now, but it's true, it radiates from the depths of you. God is a one of a kind healer, in him so much can be done. May you remain blessed sista, as our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Aww sistah, everything isn't as bad as it seems. As long as you keep your fatih in Christ Jesus there is no limit to the miracles that will prevail. Sistah, I will definitely keep you in my prayers to strengthen you even more. You will get through this, I know if my aunt did you can too. :wink: Much love sistah. Much love.

I will keep on keepin on.. "in my fathers house there are many mansions".. but ill be makin my reservation for a later date i presume.:heart:
