I Will Survive

I Will Survive

Life can change, at the turn of a screw,
When the word ‘cancer’ is spoken to you.
You’re upset, you’re frightened,
You don’t know what to do.



I know I must own it,
And conquer it I will.
But in the present moment
I’m sick, tired, and ill.

Cancer and death, for many years,
Have always been linked together.
I must change my mind and know today
That truth is not forever.

“I will survive, I’m not a victim!”
I will shout out each day.
Then I’ll go home, fall on my knees,
And pray, and pray, and pray.
