Cancer


Like a thief in the night,
You came into our lives.
One minute we are able,
The next we are condemned.
Your methods are not restricted,
Your victims are not selective.
You are merciless and forbidding,
Callous and bold.
You take no prisoners,
Yet you leave us imprisoned.
You attack with no sympathy,
You leave lives in shambles,
Hearts forever shattered,
Words never articulated,
Families forever broken.
You are our adversary,
Yet never motivated.
You left us speechless,
But screaming till the end.
Screams of why!
Screams of help!
But our voices are just memories,
Left behind.
Those that have met you,
Will live to remember you.
Your name is unspoken,
But whispered in the lives
You have claimed--
Cancer.
