My Name Is Cancer


My name is cancer; I have no regard for life.
I break hearts and tear apart families.
I appear out of the blue and strangely.
I do not see race, or age, or beauty in people, for I'm a disease,
and blind to the good hearts I take.
The more people I take from this earth, the more I‘m feared.
I'm inside everyone: every mother, father, sister, and son.
To know me, is to know death,
To feel me, is to fell anguish.
To see me is like seeing then sun,
then falling away into darkness where there is no more light,
where there is only pain.
Where there is only a feeling of hell that you do not understand,
and cannot explain.
I make friends cry, I make families feel hopeless.
Is it fair for me to make the vibrant wither?
Is it fair for me to take the old before their time?
Is it fair of me to strike fear into the hearts of families?
Is it fair for me to take the life of an inanest child?
I'm just but a disease that knows no bounds.
Hopefully you never have the misfortune
of hearing my name.
