It comes like a thief in the night On the victim it preys
Without a sight.
Not sure how to survive The family feels paralyzed.
Watching from the side The pain grows The body shows
Poison becomes the healer Temporary relief.
How much can the victim endure?
Each cancer has it's own pace. The amount of time on earth becomes a race
This alien life-form becomes all too familiar A pain we will never be able to quite shake
Our only escape is death, Which is a cruel fate.
