Dear {K}ancer (part 2)

December 7, 2017

 

Dear Cancer,
As much as I hate you, I love you.
You have taught me so much, yet you've left me so ignorant.
I don't understand why I detected you so slowly, or how you spread so fast.
You steal, you kill
You bring life, you bring death
You give, you take
You commend, you degrade
Oh, but I am in love with you.
I am in love with everything about you.
I want to know you better, though I am afraid of you.
I am afraid of your thoughts, your presence, your speed, and your intensity.
I am afraid of your heart, your brain, your lungs, your veins.
I am afraid of your breasts, your ovaries, your prostate, your skin.
I am you and you are I, now we are tied together forever.
You are a parasite, I was your home
Now we are tied together forever.
Without me, you would've been dead
Now we are tied together forever.
Without you, I would've remained weak
Now we are tied together forever.
You taught me how to fight
This fight is so much more than me.
I now know how to fight with my heart, my spirit, and soul
Because of you, I fight for a cause.
I fight for a cure.
Above all, I fight for hope.
Cancer, I must thank you, because without you, I would not understand me.
Still, regretfully yours,
Camille D. Morgan
