The Silent Monster

You don't have a single clue
It attacks inside of you
Silently it starts a war
And sneaks a virus to the core
Of your womanhood and breasts
Putting your strength to the test
Fighting a battle hard to win
That's claimed victims time and again
Your perseverance pulls you through
The next surgery or two
Leaving you a whole lot lighter
Proving that you are a fighter
Pink ribbon worn on your dress
Hiding scars upon your flesh
A pretty pink bow in your hair
Until a wig is placed on there
Holding hands with others who
Raise money on walks right by you
Candles lighting up the night
 Remember those who lost the fight
To this monster that don't care
Who it takes or when or where

    You should enter this in that breast cancer contest. Although I cannot really relate on a personal level, I have had 3 family members pass away from cancer; horrible disease. But, seriously, enter that contest; I believe you have a chance of winning. Good job, Robin :)
