Noticing that lump into your breast
isn't pleasant news as the worst fear sets in;
don't block your sharp sense of perception...
realize there's always hope and help.
Woman, you can win this battle if your courage is worth more
than tears...try to destroy the enemy who's has taken endless lives,
smile when pink ribbons are tied around trees and pinned on doors
remembering those who suffer as you do and hope for a cure.
If someone you know has given up and wishes to die tomorrow,
please encourage that person to believe that somehow
miracles happen: if she has the faith of a mustard seed,
only then she can move many mountains indeed.
Woman, you can win this battle by showing defiance,
and you'll fight fiercer than that any warrior in pink who relies on self-strength;
listen to the inner voice and put on a face of endurance...
be stronger than any woman has ever been and block out the thought of death.
Dedicated to Angelina JO: A Warrior In Pink
