You are not me.
Your name brings fear all around. And have us rethink our life. We cannot even see you, yet you are public enemy number one. How come we let you define who we are. You are nothing but a parasite living with me. In me. Like a jack in the box you spring forth at some random time. Claiming life as your own.
We walk around with you, let you decide how we should act around others. You have the power to change us unwillingly. Even if it just a mention of your name. Nobodies friend, you purge us from smiles, creating rotting images where we should see beauty. Draw sad faces where we should smile. Your power exceeds us all. Even the people around me are affected though they do not hold you or have you with them.
But where do you come from. How is that you grow in numbers so fast. Are you a demon from hell. Why can you not tell us how we can keep you at bay. Or are you here to tell us we gone to far playing God. Where does you answer begin. Or where does that, of us end.
You bring us fear with just the mention of your name. But I will stand tall for I do not fear you. You do not make me who I am, you do not define, me. You cannot be seen while you feed of me. My fear and of those around me. But I will not sit still in a corner, waiting for you to grow and take me away. I will not sit here in tears when I can see smiles in my future. You have a name but so do I. you are not me, you are just a small part. And I will not heal over for a name. I will not give in, to a ghost. I will make something of tomorrow and you are coming along to see things can be different. I will drag you past the smiles and tears. And show you beauty.
I will go all out on you and not let you win with your game. Crawl through me all you want I see beyond you and your evil face. I see beyond the scarred and crying faces around me. For there lies beauty in a simple smile of a innocent child. Or singing birds.
No I will not fear you Cancer, you are not me. You will never become me. So live with me, die with me. For I will not surrender my life to you. I will not suffer in a corner, I will come forth and go forth with or without you.
Written after it being world Cancer day. Knowing it is all around us. One in three people will most likely get in touch with it. As, get it. But I believe it is not the end just hearing its name. We can still smile and live the best we can. No I do not have cancer. This is something that came to me in my head. And wrote down. I was not sure if should have posted this, but did as you can see. This is a written flash story hoping to give strength and inspire not to give up.
Leave a comment, thought or piece of critique. I welcome it all, since I do want people to think.
Best wishes and keep on smiling
