A Happy Cancer

A Happy Cancer
By: Noel N. Villarosa


Sadness invades a glowing life
Agitation of what comes next after the fact
The beginning of all ends in cancer’s strife
Life to death, we fear of the day to be exact

But there are chances to replace the peril
To yield oneself to the power of God’s glory
We live each day to the fate of going until
Hiatus for sometime and serve the hospice as another journey

A chance to mingle with relatives and friends
And share happy moments to tide over hardship
A chance to smile and express the beauty at its ends
And show positive outlook to thwart phantom of death

A chance to join the crusade to search for the cure
To talk and comfort other cancer patients
Bring back juvenile act to escape discomposure
And live with someone by your side to listen

Don’t wait but give a fight to survive
There is treatment by enduring chemotherapy
Or take the chance of trying other alternatives
Rather than living in the shadow of sympathy

Travel to places to meet your pleasure
Explore and challenge oneself to new horizon
That will give you space for new treasure
To prove your will that you can still join the marathon

Be inspired by the testimony of others
That there’s a chance to alter gloomy to glory
And if by heart, they live to stay another year
Let them be called not a survivors, but a cancer conquerors
In their smile we can see the triumph by winning each day
A happy cancer

    This is such an uplifting and positive outlook you have shown with this poem. Bravo to you, NOel. I am thinking someone very dear to you went thru a cancer treatment program. I hope they were a cancer conqueror. Luv, Andrea

    I had to read this, given the title. I take it this from a personal experience? It is melancholy, but it does bring inspiration and it tackles a sensitive, potentially verboten subject . This should go in your worthwhile off beat file. Regards and thank you. Gerard.

    This poem reminds me of the struggles my Mother endured with this dread disease and finally succumbed to on Thanksgiving Day last year... it was so sad to see her skeletonized so quickly... a vibrant woman of beauty... this is incredible Noel and sensitive to the reader ..luv.. Linda-Marie..
