Who Am I?

It seems like I am as I always was,
A daughter, a mother, a sister, a wife
It seems like I’m doing what I’ve always been doing,
Caring for others, and living my life
It seems each day is as it’s always been,
I get up, I work, and I play to win
It seems this isn’t really my life at all,
It’s like sitting back and watching through a hazy ball
It seems clear on days when I’m feeling my best,
Not on days when I’m tired, and can only rest
Because it’s really not me that’s going through this thing,
It’s only my body, my heart, and soul continue to sing
I will not allow myself to be defined by this cancer,
For I am still me, and that seems like the answer
