Cancer is a word

Cancer is a word, not a sentence
It's only the beginning, not the finish
A mountain filled with rocky terrain
A terrorist inside, desperate to claim

But you're a warrior through and through
This foreign intruder has not a clue
A strike of lightening as the sun shines bright
Knocks you down with vengeful spite

Although it may feel like the end is near
With God on your side, the fog will clear
At the end of this road is path of victory
The invasion, simply a page of history
