Cancer a word that everyone dreads and that no one wants to hear
It will change your life, it will change everything.
But you never think, not even once that it might be you who has to fear it
Hopefully family and friends are there for you - but no matter how hard they try,
the truth is you have to face it alone
Your first instinct is to run away, but for a chance of life your only choice is to stand and fight; you square your shoulders and lift your head
Acting bravely, but inside you scream, terrified
As you open that first door, you’ll risk it all; you'll let them poison you.
You give them your hair, your skin, and your sanity
It feels like you're underwater and drowning, all the time falling
All of this to feel worse so you'll feel better
When at last its over and finally you're done
But now the guilt sets in, cause your alive and so many others did not survive
