Inspirational Poem For Fighting Cancer

Recently I did Race for Life, I have done it a few times but this year it meant a lot more to me because my Grandma had found a lump and we thought it might be cancer. I wrote this poem the night I found out about it- fortunately my Grandma had the lump removed and all is okay now but it could have been a lot worse.

Cancer

One day you showed up,
With no reason why,
You claimed your victims,
You've made grown men cry.

I'm warning you now,
That we're all fighting back,
One day we will stop,
Your unprovoked attacks.

You've proven your point,
You make me sick to the core,
You've left so many waiting,
Outside of death's door.

Enough is enough,
You can't ruin lives forever,
You've torn apart families,
That were happy together,

Nobody knows,
Why you're even here,
You're not wanted, you're hated,
You take those that are dear.

There's no explanation,
But I want an answer,
I know what you are,
you're that murderous coward they call cancer.

You've got nowhere to run,
And nowhere to hide,
We are coming to get you,
So say your final goodbyes!

My grandmother had gotten cancer and everyone was devastated by the news. She was in and out of the hospital until she had to stay in there. She wasn't allowed to go home until the house was secure with handrails due to her falling over one day. By then the cancer had gotten worse and I couldn't take it anymore. One day, I went to school, got my education for the day and went home. Later that day, I had gotten the terrible news that she passed away. The funeral was a week later and everyone was in tears. She was a single mother with two sons and five beautiful grandchildren. Just reading this poem touched me and it will forever be my favorite cancer poem.
