Did you lose someone to cancer?
Did you march and collect funds?
Did you wear the ribbons
Did you do a 5-K run?
Did you try to no avail to save the life of a loved one?
Did you light a candle
And wish the disease didn't exist?
Do you continue fighting
Did u persist?
Did you stop and analyze
What you're truly fighting for?
Are you helping to find answers or
Are you helping suppress the cure?
Cancer generates more than 160 billion dollars a year
Why would they end suffering and disease
When they know they keep us on our knees;
And instead of the outrage
We continue funding the ones who profit from our suffering
and ignore our many pleas
