Mother who is that man who has no hair?
I have hair.
That man that has no eyebrows?
I have eyebrows.
That man who looks slim?
I am healthy.
Who is that man with a plastic bag
hanging from his arm?
My arms are free.
Who is that man who looks like me?
Suddenly I was screaming for help
Crying out loud yes
that man`s image is me.
Mother look at that mirror with me
see If that man is me?
When did you find out
I have cancer?
Tears were flowing down my face
I am strong I don't cry that image
he looks dead how long will I live?
Mother whispered to the mirror I couldn't!
As I knew not
except that image in that mirror,
My son, we will remain here for the coming five months.
I prayed fear not you will become
The Miracle Boy.
Today five years later he is free of cancer,
he looks at his mirror knows who he is.
Alive and Healthy.
