Game of Survival


Like a game of hide and seek
not easily found with a peek
it's a scary word that we don't speak
and if it's found most will freak

A six letter word that packs a punch
not something simply discussed at lunch
it definitely gives your soul a crunch
and at your life it will munch and munch

You can't let it win, you must always fight
and that will certainly take all your might
there is no rest, it's there both day and night
you mustn't ever give into the fright

It takes a village but can be beat

The 6 letter word is cancer and I dedicate this write to my boyfriend who is currently in a fight against Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia.... he is thankfully winning:-)  He also blogs and his poetry provides some in site to what he goes through emotionally, you can find his stuff at From My Wicked Ways to Turning a Phrase if you are interested.  A couple writes that expresses his feelings are Cathartic & Punching at Ghosts, do give them a read:-)

Last year I sat with a friend when she did chemo. In the waiting room were words that were a powerful reminder that cancer is not always the victor. Perhaps you would like to read them here. http://lulumusing.wordpress.com/2010/10/04/what-cancer-cannot-do/
Hope all goes will with the boyfriend, and thanks for your visit. Do come again.
