This Day


Today the doctor called and said he needs to see me.
Tomorrow morning the appointment set.
Has time finally deceived me?
A criminal is inside me. and wanting to take my soul.
Do I let him succeed or should I try to keep my fragile body whole?
I wonder all night what agony is inside me.
Bad blood with black spots the x-ray only sees.
Will radiation's nasty taste finally set me free?

This day. wll the world finally end?
This day. wll it be filled with sorrow and dread?
This day. wll I finally meet my maker?
This day.

The radiation has taken my hair.
My will. my pride and even my despair.
She tries to cure the cancerous blood.
But does so without grace or even a hint of love.
She takes my dignity and my shame.
Forever wanting someone to blame.
But in the end the fight is mine.
The battle to wage. for all time.

This day. wll the world finally end?
This day. wll it be filled with sorrow and dread?
This day. wll I finally meet my maker?
This day.
