The Big C is her enemy

It stalks her everywhere she goes

She’s been told it will get her

When that will be

She doesn’t know

She runs and runs

Trying to outsmart it

But it comes from a bad place

Not from her  spirit

She’s winning so far

She’s ahead by a mile

Just that thought alone

Is enough to make her smile

She’ll be ready if it shows up

She’ll be sure not to mess up

Her life, as it stands

Full of dreams and plans

So she won’t sit here

And throw up her hands

No matter

Its Disastrous demands

If it’s a fight it wants

Then a fight it will get

Winning will be her goal

On that,

Her heart is firmly set
