metastatic cancer: my piece

transformation, change
call it whatever you want
you never go back

you long to be free
from the fear, the depression
the pain, the disease

an unwelcome guest
metastatic cancer stays
long beyond hello

wish it would vanish
like nightmare’s haunting specter
wake up and say, Aah

but waking you see
it clings with powerful might
no running away

how to cope daily
i make it up as i go
bittersweet question

i have no answers
except i do know one truth
none of us know why

i hate wasting time
so with new goals and new dreams
i’m making my peace

wherever i go
and however long, i hope
to give ’em all hell
