A Fighting Heart


Faith is not seen,
But it is deeply felt
Courage is a state of mind,
It overcomes fear
And casts away doubt
Hope shows up each new day,
Hope for a cure or just to light the way
Love is always around to lend a helping hand,
Helping the weak when they cannot stand,
But love is not aggressive and it does not fight
Much more is needed to win this war,
Maybe something that was not seen before
Do not fear because there is no strength that shines brighter
Than that which lies within the heart of a cancer fighter

Poetry has been an outlet for me for as long as I can remember. "A Fighting Heart" was inspired by not only my personal battle with cancer, but by a friend's battle as well. I want the readers to have the strength to continue fighting their own personal battles. "A Fighting Heart" is dedicated to Michael Beier. I wanted to give him hope but he gave me inspiration.
