You are a stranger in people’s life.
You are the undertaker of souls.
You are the killer that leaves underground,
And the one that everybody don’t know really well,
But yet still afraid of.
You are a very cold diseases
That moves very quickly with out hesitation -
Just like a bandit breaking into somebody’s house.
Breaking everything in it and people’s lives as well.
People is full of fear because of you.
Because of you, people go through massive pain
And irreplaceable memories
Stranger stop your movement ,
And give everybody a break.
No body enjoys your company.
Cancer, you are wrong if you believe that you’re going to win;
If you didn’t break a survivor most believed it that you made them way stronger
You are nothing but a fear that could be easily overcome.
With a little bit of confidence and the great power of will.
Love ones do not let this horrible stranger take the best of you.
Believe in your self and you will survive.
Believe in you, because GOD believes in you too.
We all believe in you.
In fact don’t believe it; know it
You will survive.
And for those who are almost at the end of their path,
Most believe that you are going to a better a place,
A beautiful place called heaven.
God is waiting for you -
You will not be forsaken
Words of a survivor:
You are a monster that spreads panic and suffering,
You are a big fear that makes us wonder when you’re going to end.
You change our lives without asking for permission.
You leave us out of munitions making us weak and afraid,
You think you’re stronger than me, but you are wrong
I know I am stronger and bigger.
I thank God that I have someone that always keeps me going and over power you.
I hate you so much you have no idea, you change my life from day to night; you made me
feel like I was nobody and really I know I am the best.
My life was almost ruined, but I know I can fix the rest.
I will show not only you, but the whole world, that I will survive; I will prove that you
I will look into your eyes and tell you that I am not afraid.
I can do it, I know that I can and I will
I will prove the world that you do not exist, that you are nothing but fear.
You monster, I will win.
